The Winemiller Aquatic Ecology Lab investigates fish ecology and evolution, community ecology, and ecosystem ecology in aquatic habitats. Our research is strongly field oriented, with studies conducted at sites throughout Texas, Latin America, Africa, and, more recently, Southeast Asia. Our field research is conducted mostly in fluvial ecosystems (streams, rivers, estuaries) and adopts descriptive, comparative and experimental approaches. The research is strongly oriented towards advancement of both basic scientific understanding as well as options for better conservation of biodiversity and the ecosystems that support it.
