Synopsis

My research interests encompass population and community phenomena in a variety of aquatic and terrestrial environments. My work with mollusks deals with genetic and ecological aspects of population regulation processes. Estuarine investigations are focused on predation, control of benthic communities, and on mechanisms structuring the genetic and ecological properties of intertidal bivalve populations.
