Research in the Aquatic Ecology and Astacology Lab focuses on the ecology and biology of Louisiana crayfishes and aquatic systems.  Research efforts assess ecological functions of aquatic habitats, the effects of physical and chemical habitat characteristics on aquatic biota, physical and physiological responses of aquatic biota to environmental hypoxia, changes in physicochemical and biotic communities due to natural and anthropogenic influences, and distribution, life history characteristics, and diversity of crayfishes throughout the state.
