Dr. Rick Relyea

Professor

Director, Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology

 
 

The Relyea Lab investigates a wide variety of topics related to the biology and conservation of freshwater ecosystems.  The work is wide ranging, including community ecology, ecotoxicology, phenotypic plasticity, sexual selection, animal mating systems, forest inputs to wetlands, disease ecology, and invasive species.  We approach this work from multiple disciplines (e.g., ecology, evolution, behavior, toxicology, biochemistry)  and we work with a diversity of organisms including tadpoles, fish, snails, crayfish, amphipods, insects, zooplankton, and algae.


In the links above, you can find everything you might want to know about the past and present members of the lab and the research projects of each member.  We invite you to explore our web pages and learn more about what we do!
