Research Interests

Aquatic animal Habitat usage

The effect of human degradation and climate changes on aquatic animal habitat and habitat usage

 

Past Research

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS OF SEAGRASSES ALONG THE WEST COAST OF PENINSULAR FLORIDA

Why This Research is Important

Seagrasses are an important habitat for numerous marine animals. They are currently declining in number and eutrophication is shown to be one of the main causes. Due to the shading of these plants and their need for light to survive, knowing seagrass light requirements is pertinent in saving an important habitat in our marine system.
