Aquatic Biology

Aquatic Biology examines the ecology, distribution, and physiology of various marine and freshwater organisms. Research topics include the ecology and distribution of invertebrate and vertebrate animals, fish physiology and parasitology, the taxonomy and systematics of aquatic organisms (such as algae, viruses, plants, and animals), and habitat monitoring.
