Dr. Nislow conducts research on the relationship between land use,
aquatic habitat, and the distribution & abundance of fish and aquatic
invertebrates. Specializing in establishing explicit, mechanistic
links between environmental variation with the behavior, growth,
and survival of stream salmonid fishes, Dr. Nislow is particularly
interested in using basic science to assist restoration, conservation,
and management and is active in several international research collaborations.
Dr. Nislow currently serves as a technical advisor to The Nature
Conservancy, the Connecticut River Atlantic Salmon Commission, the
USFW Gulf of Maine Program, and Region 9 of the National Forest
System, and as an Associate Editor of the Transactions of the American
