Dr. Jason Hoverman
Our research group is broadly interested in the fields of community ecology, ecotoxicology, and disease ecology. Given the strong influence of human activities on natural systems, we increasingly emphasize the interactive effects of natural (e.g., predators, pathogens, competitors) and anthropogenic (e.g., chemical contaminants, habitat loss) factors in our work. Our general approach is to combine laboratory and mesocosm experiments with broad-scale field surveys to provide mechanistic insights into these effects. To address our research interests, we use freshwater aquatic systems (e.g., ponds, wetlands, and lakes) and their associated taxa (e.g., tadpoles, snails, insects, fish, parasites).
