The Pease Aquatic Ecology Lab carries out research that is intended to improve conservation and management of aquatic resources.  Primarily, the research focus is on impacts of environmental change on stream fish assemblages.  These relationships are investigated by examining the functional structure of fish assemblages and influences of environmental factors at multiple scales.  We aim to study stream communities locally (in the southwestern U.S.) and internationally.
