The Aquatic Ecology Research Lab at TCU explores a variety of questions related to community and ecosystem ecology, fisheries, and ecotoxicology. We conduct experiments using mesocosms and hatchery ponds and conduct field studies in ponds at the LBJ Grassland ponds, Caddo Lake, large reservoirs, coastal estuaries and the Gulf of Mexico. We work with a wide variety of aquatic organisms including plankton, macroinvertebrates, fish, and turtles. Most importantly we are committed to involving students in the lab's research.

We have developed a web site for the general public where we present the results of our research on mercury contamination of the environment. Click here to visit the mercury site.
