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, 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. Explore the links above to learn more. Students and teachers interested in learning more about aquatic ecology should also visit the North Texas Aquatics Gateway.
