Understanding freshwater systems through experimentation, observation, modeling, and management
The fisheries systems ecology lab is led by Dr. Gretchen Hansen at the University of Minnesota. Our research focuses on pattern and process in aquatic communities and ecosystems and management responses to local, regional, and global change. To answer complex questions we employ multiple approaches including statistical analyses of historical data, observational field studies, simulation modeling, and large-scale experimentation .
