About FLBS Research

FLBS research continues a legacy of discovery in ecology with an emphasis on freshwater. Research is conducted by an interdisciplinary team of faculty, research scientists, students, and affiliates. This team investigates ecological systems and their interactions with society at multiple scales, from genes to ecosystems.

FLBS scientists work diligently to engage and educate the community by translating our science to the general public. Our research covers a variety of themes, including Water Quality, Lake Ecology, Stream & River Ecology, Floodplain Ecology, Conservation Genetics, Salmonid Ecology, Climate Science, and Remote Sensing, among others.
