We are examining the response of ecotonal fish communities in the southern Everglades to hydrologic disturbance. In particular, we are examining the spatiotemporal spatiotemporal dynamics of the fish communities of ecotonal and estuarine habitats in response to key ecosystem drivers (freshwater inflow and salinity).

Biological invasions provide an excellent model system for the study of species interactions and novel selection pressures. Invasions bring into contact species that have no common evolutionary history, and thus lack adaptive responses to an invader. Read more...
We have a limited understanding of how modified aquatic landscapes function as habitat for both native and non-native fishes. These canals may function as novel ecosystems, dominated by non-native taxa, and whose structure and function are different from that of natural fish habitats of the Everglades. Read more...
