Department of Environmental Science & Ecology Professor Emeritus Publishes Peer-Reviewed Paper
The goal of the study was to compare Great Lakes coastal wetlands (GLCW) fish community composition in the spring, summer, and fall months and investigate how water quality relates to fish diversity, the presence of functional groups, and juvenile fish diets. The authors concluded that taxonomic and functional composition of fish communities in GLCW vary markedly with respect to water quality and season.
