Research in Aquatic Ecology

Dzialowski Lab

Oklahoma State University


Research in our lab explores how biotic interactions, resource availability, and disturbance influence the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems.

We combine laboratory, observational, and experimental studies to address several major themes:

  • Metacommunity dynamics
  • Ecology of invasive species
  • Zooplankton community structure
  • Ecology and management of cyanobacterial blooms
  • Applied water quality and reservoir management
  • Wetland ecology and management
