Environmental Science & Ecology Faculty Publishes Article Examining the “Dead Zone”

Matthew Altenritter coauthored a peer-reviewed manuscript that details variable exposure of individual fish to sub-lethal low oxygen concentrations in the Gulf of Mexico “dead zone” with implications for modified food web dynamics.
