Abstract

My work uses a food-web approach to improve our understanding of how nutrient enrichment affects aquatic community structure of the Florida Everglades. To accomplish this goal, I use an integrative approach of field studies, mesocosm experiments and lab techniques. We anticipate the combination of experimental studies and new technology will provide information to aide interpretation of time series data collected for monitoring the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan.
