Roelke, Daniel individual record

Why is it that so many microscopic organisms can be found in a single drop of water? And how is it that these minute species can shape entire ecosystems? How might our knowledge of ecological principals governing these microbes be used to protect our living natural resources? Teaching and Research in the Roelke Lab addresses these questions. Understanding lower foodweb dynamics of aquatic ecosystems with an emphasis on interactions between biota and the physicochemical environment is the focus of much of this research.
