My recent work has focused on the role of chemical cues in aquatic predator-prey interactions
and on abiotic factors that influence habitat choice by terrestrial salamanders. I
am also interested in the response of benthic invertebrate communities to perturbation
and in the energetic costs of tolerating stress at the level of the individual organism.
