Research: Aquatic Ecology
  • Ph.D., University of New Hampshire, 1992

Research Interests

  • Dr. Forrester's general interest is in the ecology of populations occupying aquatic environments. There are two main themes of his research: (1) to further conceptual understanding of natural populations, and (2) to apply these concepts to environmental problems in innovative ways. His work is typically field-based, and he takes an experimental and quantitative approach to answering questions that are motivated by the rapidly developing theory for these systems. Dr. Forrester's research is done in a variety of habitats and on different organisms, depending on the questions being asked. Mostly, though, he works on fish and invertebrates that live on coral and rocky reefs, as well as in streams and estuaries.
