Research and Teaching Interests

A central theme in much of Dr. Thomas’ research is to determine ecosystem level consequences of natural and anthropogenic stresses in aquatic ecosystems. Dr. Thomas works principally with primary producer communities in shallow marine/freshwater hydrosystems, linking ecosystem structure to physico-chemical variation by understanding functional processes at the base of the food web. His research has combined descriptive and experimental approaches to determine causal relationships between biotic and environmental variation.
