Ecology and Conservation of Freshwaters
B.A. (Biology, with honors, Carleton College)
Ph.D. (School of Aquatic and Fishery Science, University of Washington)
Dr. Jonathan Moore is broadly interested in the ecology and management of aquatic ecosystems. Jon does most of his work in stream and lake systems. His current research seeks to understand how species interactions and disturbances drive ecosystem processes, community dynamics, and evolution in freshwaters. Jon and his students are interested in questions such as: What are the consequences of species additions or extinctions? How are human activities altering disturbance regimes? What are the causes and ecological consequences of population dynamics of Pacific salmon, an ecologically and culturally important group of species? Although his focus is generally on food webs, he draws from multiple perspectives, applying theories and approaches from evolutionary, ecosystem, food-web, and community ecology viewpoints. Dr. Moore and his students supplement experiments and comparative studies in field settings with modeling and stable isotope techniques.
