Organisation or Individual Expertise:
My research is largely focussed on impact of land-use activities on surface water quality. These include forestry operations (planting to felling), urbanisation, mining, agriculture, motorway construction, culverting and climate change. Pressures studied include eutrophication, organic pollution, heavy metal contamination, acidification and sedimentation. I have employed both physico-chemical and biological (macroinvertebrates, phytobenthos and fish) parameters. Research expertise extends to investigations of mitigation measures for the aforementioned pressures including management options for riparian zones. I am also investigating biological responses to acute and chronic nutrient and sediment pollution and combinations of both using field observations and experimental mesocosms.
