The study is part of the state and federal Interagency Ecological Program’s monitoring effort for the entire San Francisco Estuary.
This research explores:
-the response of non-coevolved fish assemblies to water management
-the effect of climate change and other long-term stressors on fish and invertebrate communities
-the effect of managed wetlands on aquatic food resources
-the function of Suisun Marsh as nursery habitat for fishes
The Suisun Marsh Study is part of a ten-year collaborative multi-taxa research project with researchers from UC Davis’ Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology and Center for Watershed Sciences. Collaborators include:
-Professor John Eadie and his research on Waterfowl Energetics
-Professor Doug Kelt and his research on the ecology of the Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse
-Professor Brian Todd and his research on Western Pond Turtle habitat
