I am interested in understanding how interactions between methane and nutrient dynamics can influence aquatic food webs. Justin Murdock Cody Davis Godwin My dissertation is on snake fungal disease (SFD), a fungal pathogen effecting wild snakes across the Eastern United States. We aim to develop a spatial assessment of the status and risks to species-rich concentrations of mussel assemblages in the Meramec River Drainage. Blackburn I am working on an ecotoxicology project around brook trout restoration in a small headwater stream. in Wildlife and Fisheries Science, Tennessee Tech University Advisors: Dr. Justin Murdock Sarah Brown My thesis work is on diet selection and competitive interactions of non-target species at bird feeders. Robert Brown My dissertation research will focus on nutrient retention and methane production in restored floodplain wetlands. in Sustainable Development and Environmental Biology, Appalachian State University M. in Biology, University of North Carolina at Greensboro Advisor: Dr. Pinpointing causes of these declines and where threats cause the most risk to populations is an ongoing challenge for management. Specifically, I focus on endangered organisms, like the Pygmy Madtom ( Aden J. “Kate Chopin’s : The Evolution of the New Woman.” Baylor U, 2001. “Maternal Misogyny: Absent Mothers in Eighteenth and Nineteenth-Century Fiction.” East Tennessee State U, 2001. “The ‘Other’ Awakening: American Character, Pragmatism, and the Assassinations of Kate Chopin and Charles Chesnutt.” Columbia U, 2001. “Wagner’s ‘Tristan’ and the Limits of Love: Tristanism in Thomas Mann, Kate Chopin, and Willa Cather.” Emory U, 2001. “Voices of Disobedience in the Fiction of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton, Nella Larsen, and Mary Austin.” Indiana U of Pennsylvania, 2001. “The Female Artist as a Feminist Expression.” California State U, Dominguez Hills, 2000. “Kate Chopin: The Woman and the Myth.” California State U, Dominguez Hills, 2000. “Devouring Words: Eating and Feeding in Selected Fiction of Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton, and Willa Cather.” Baylor U, 2000. “Maternal Deprivation and the Disruption of the Cult of Domesticity: Three Case Studies in Hawthorne, Crane, and Chopin.” Saint Louis U, 2000. “Kate Chopin’s Contribution to Realism and Naturalism: Reconsiderations of W.

Further, data from the ongoing study by Murray et al (2015) of American crocodiles (Crocodylus acutus) will be used to compare variation in effective population size among age cohorts of a population subject to chronic endocrine disrupting contaminants exposure. Brian Carver Mack White I am currently working with migratory catostomid fishes in Citico Creek, located in East Tennessee.
The proposed study aims to provide data on the demographic effects of endocrine disrupting contaminants in long-lived vertebrates, reliable census for Alligator mississippiensis in the Mobile-Tensaw delta, and demonstrate the utility of a DNA-based approach in aquatic vertebrate ecotoxicology. in Fisheries and Wildlife Management, Northern Michigan University Advisor: Dr. in Chemistry, East Tennessee State University Advisor: Dr. I am working to quantify the nutrient subsidies these fish deliver to their spawning grounds via carcass, egg, and excretion inputs. in Environmental Science, Marshall University Advisor: Dr. in Wildlife Ecology, Research and Management and Biology, University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point Advisor: Dr. in Environmental Studies, University of Tennessee Advisor: Dr. in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology, North Carolina State University Advisor: Dr.
Using a combination of genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) and GIS landscape genetic tools, we hope to provide a clear-cut example of applied conservation genomics by enhancing the understanding of A. Carla Hurt Valerie Jones I am studying the habitat use of the federally endangered bluemask darter on the Collins River, with implications for reintroduction in the Calfkiller River.
barbouri genetic diversity in Tennessee and clarifying conservation units and priorities for future management decisions.
My secondary objective is to document the occurrence and outcomes of agonistic interactions between birds and non-targets visiting these stations. Steve Hayslette Jennifer Caudle I will study temporal changes in freshwater fish communities, where community structure will be characterized in a subset of streams that were sampled 20 years ago using the Index of Biotic Integrity to quantify changes over the last two decades. To do this I am using Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) microspectroscopy to measure changes in macromolecular content of D. in Fisheries and Wildlife Management, Lake Superior State University Advisor: Dr.
