The study of energy and nutrients through interacting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

 

Jonathan Doubek

Jonathan joined the Carey Lab in Fall 2013, as a Ph.D. student studying freshwater biology. His primary research focus is quantifying how multiple stressors (e.g. land use changes, climate change, invasive species and nutrient loading) affect lake planktonic communities, which have resulting consequences for lake water quality and human use. He combines field research, laboratory experiments, and ecosystem modeling to examine how each of these aspects individually influences lake food webs, but also how these different stressors can interact for combined effects.
