Algal Biodiversity, Ecosystem Function and Bioassessment in Streams and Rivers
 
We are conducting an ecoregion survey of freshwater algae across New York State.  Our aims are to catalog the New York algal diversity, assess the influence of ecological conditions that favor or threaten biodiversity, and establish a GIS database to identify geographic and ecological trends. With these data we aim to examine how algal diversity affects ecosystem services, such as primary productivity, CO2 absorption, decomposition, and nutrient cycling in streams.
