Introduction
My postdoc research focuses on relating streamflow alteration to native fish communities in California. I am broadly interested in the environmental determinants of community composition, food webs, and their variability over time in freshwater ecosystems.

Article
Watershed urbanization leads to chemical and thermal pollution of urban streams and significant declines in aquatic biodiversity. Most investigators have focused on variation in total watershed impervious surface cover (ISC) as the primary driver of urban stream degradation. We asked instead whether the degree of connectivity between ISC and urban...

Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) is a virulent fungal pathogen that infects salamanders. It is implicated in the recent collapse of several populations of fire salamanders in Europe. This pathogen seems much like that of its sister species, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), the agent responsible for anuran extinctions and extirpations wo...
Article
Widespread saltwater intrusion into freshwater coastal ecosystems could dramatically alter the fate of stored carbon as well as the rate of future soil carbon (C) sequestration. We carried out a large survey of soil C at 51 freshwater wetland sites across the coastal plain of North Carolina. We then conducted a microcosm experiment with soils from...
Article
Aposematic coloration allows predators to use visual cues to avoid eating potentially toxic or distasteful prey. Predators across many animal taxa actively avoid aposematically colored prey and remember distasteful brightly colored prey longer than cryptically colored prey. Lizards of many species are known to use aposematic coloration when foragin...
Article
Environmental regimes, which encompass decadal‐scale or longer variation in climate and disturbance, shape communities by selecting for adaptive life histories, behaviors, and morphologies. In turn, at ecological timescales, extreme events may cause short‐term changes in composition and structure via mortality and recolonization of the species pool...
Article
Ecosystems are defined, studied, and managed according to boundaries constructed to conceptualize patterns of interest at a certain scale and scope. The distinction between ecosystems becomes obscured when resources from multiple origins cross porous boundaries and are assimilated into food webs through repeated trophic transfers. Ecosystem compart...
Article
Bone strength is influenced by many properties intrinsic to bone, including its mass, geometry, and mineralization. To further advance our understanding of the genetic basis of bone-strength-related traits, we used a large (n = 815), moderately (G(4) ) advanced intercross line (AIL) of mice derived from a high-runner selection line (HR) and the C57...
