Cross, Wyatt

Assistant Professor
Ecology
Montana State University - Bozeman
Professional Summary: 

Research in my laboratory is devoted to understanding patterns and processes in freshwater ecosystems. In particular, we're interested in the linkages between food web dynamics and ecosystem ecology, with an emphasis on bridging theory and application. We use tools from bioenergetic (e.g., growth, secondary production) and stoichiometric (i.e., content and recycling of essential elements [C:N:P]) frameworks to link species to whole-ecosystem material fluxes, and to examine effects of altered carbon and nutrient regimes on freshwater ecosystem structure and function. I teach general biology, freshwater ecology, aquatic field ecology, and foundations of ecology and management.
