Project

The influence of climate warming on the ecological impacts of aquatic invasive species of current and emerging importance to the Great Lakes
My research will examine the competitive performance and feeding efficiencies of a select group of invasive species (including freshwater fishes and crayfishes) across a range of water temperatures reflecting current and projected future warming scenarios for the Great Lakes basin.
