Dr. Jonathan Moore
The focus of my research is ecology and conservation of aquatic systems. Water is crucial for life, but are often heavily impacted by human activities. General interests include biodiversity, watersheds, species interactions, biogeochemistry, subsidies, ecosystem engineers, disturbance, and global change. I do much of my work in the freshwaters that Pacific salmon call home and so, not surprisingly, work quite a bit on this group of ecologically important species. I aim to do research that has conservation and management implications, using a combination of field experiments, field observations, and modeling.
I hold the Liber Ero Chair of Coastal Science and Management.
