The Fish Ecology research lab, located on the West Lafayette campus in the Forestry Building room 120 (FORS 120), houses equipment for field sampling, simulation modeling, and DNA/RNA analysis.
The focus of the fish ecology group, under the direction of Dr. Tomas Hook, is fish and fisheries ecology in the Laurentian Great Lakes and inland lakes of northern Indiana. The group uses an adaptive research approach and various research methods (e.g., field sampling, controlled experiments, statistical analysis, simulation modeling) to address environmental questions at the interface between applied and basic ecology. Other study interests include lower trophic level organisms and both smaller freshwater and larger marine ecosystems.
