My research interests are in freshwater ecology, or limnology.
is rich in freshwater lakes, ponds, streams and rivers. Western
in particular, is renowned for scenic fjord lakes such as Western Brook
Pond in Gros Morne National Park. My students and I have examined the
distribution of plankton and benthic invertebrates in Western Brook Pond and I
am starting a project on zooplankton and larval fish in brackish St. Paul's
Inlet. I have investigated the
structure of zooplankton communities in natural lakes and
systems, both in Newfoundland (research projects on hydroelectric
in Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsula, and on nutrient-enriched
in Central Newfoundland, with Dr. R. Knoechel from Memorial University
of Newfoundland) and in Australia (research on predator-prey dynamics
zooplankton in salt evaporation basins in South Australia with Prof.
Williams from University of Adelaide). Projects in stream ecology
monitoring zooplankton drift in streams in western Newfoundland, with a
Masters student looking at water quality in the Mnembo River in Malawi,
Africa (part of WorldFish Center study).
My other research interests lie in the study of the structure of the
community of aquatic microfauna (ciliates, rotifers, gastrotrichs) in
treatment systems of pulp and paper mills. My students and I have
at the responses of this community to disturbances such as heavy metals
and changing pH. I have also been involved in projects monitoring the
impact of the pesticide Dylox on zooplankton in Newfoundland ponds.
