Benthic Ecology Laboratory
Effective management of marine resources requires the successful integration of rigorous scientific information, practical management strategies, and clear policy directives. My research is focused on the interface between biology, management, and policy. I examine the ecology of marine fishes and invertebrates, human impacts, and the role of the community in managing marine resources. Through collaboration with state, federal, and international agencies, I am involved in a range of activities including basic research, research with implications towards resource management, and environmental policy development.
