About the Walters Lab

Walters labWalterski

We conduct ecological research to help understand, manage, and conserve fishery resources and habitat in Wyoming. Our work seeks to gain insight into the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems and how these ecosystems are altered by natural and anthropogenic disturbance. Much of our research involves fish that are of conservation concern and as a result the studies are set in a management context and have repercussions for natural resource decision-making. Our goal is to conduct research that has relevance to both basic ecological theory and fisheries management.
