Biography

Martha Mather,Assistant Unit Leader -- Research Fish Biologist Kansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

Research Interest

the ecology of freshwater and anadromous fishes; processes that structure freshwater and estuarine fish communities; patterns, mechanisms, consequences of fish movements; how to use community ecology to devise fish sampling regimes that aid conservation, management, and restoration; spatial patterns and processes; quantitative tools; and integrated bio-social approaches to natural resource conflicts.
