Aquatic Ecology and Invasive Species Branch, EEA

Published Oct. 6, 2016


Our mission is to conduct laboratory and field studies on ecological processes and dynamics, impact analysis, habitat evaluation, restoration, inventory and monitoring on freshwater ecosystems. This is accomplished through quantitative studies at the individual, population, community, and ecosystem levels. We have expertise in taxonomy, ecology, behavior, and physiology of invertebrates, fishes, and plants.


  1.  Apply impact analysis tools such as Habitat Evaluation Procedures and Rapid Bioassement Protocols to aquatic systems.
  2. Use native plant species to restore aquatic systems that have been negatively affected by invasive species and water resource developments
  3. Develop and apply aquatic plant control methods using biological agents
  4. Apply methods of negotiation, collaboration, decision-making, and conceptual modeling to solve environmental problems
  5. Use a combination of traditional and newly-developed procedures and equipment to inventory aquatic plants, macroinvertebrates and fishes
  6. Assess the status of threatened and endangered aquatic species in the Nations waterways
