POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE – UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA Shifting hotspots: How do consumer aggregations interact to influence resource heterogeneity and fluxes in streams? We are seeking a Postdoctoral Associate to work on an NSF funded project examining how interacting groups of consumers influence resource heterogeneity in streams. This is a collaborative project between Caryn Vaughn at the University […]
We have a new paper out that shows how social assessment of ecosystem services can be used to weigh tradeoffs among water resource uses for future watershed management and planning. Castroetal.JAWRA.2016
I am interested in conservation biology, biogeography and community ecology in freshwater systems. I believe multiple forms of evidence are essential to support conservation discussions. For my master’s thesis, I compared freshwater mussel shells from two archaeological sites to a contemporary survey and discussed the conservation implications of this comparison, such as potential habitat change.
