 Mary Power, Professor, Integrative Biology

 Archaeological Research Facility

About the Speaker:
Mary Power's research interests center on river food webs. She has studied interactions among fish, birds, invertebrates, and algae in temperate and tropical rivers, and has a particular interest in how attributes of species affect food web structure and dynamics, and how strengths of these interactions change under different environmental regimes. Her team has studied, for...   More >
