About This Project

Stressors like oil and natural gas (ONG) development have rendered many freshwater ecosystems and their inhabitants impaired. Our project will combine field and laboratory studies to assess physiological responses of fishes to stressors associated with ONG development. Changes to stress hormones and immune responses will be evaluated across a gradient of ONG development stressors. Knowledge gained from this study will provide a better understanding of fish adaptation to human stressors.
