Using Physiological Measurements to Manage Declining Fish Populations

Wed, Feb 13, 12:00 pm
Location: 
126 Barnard Hall
Speaker Name: 
Dr. Christine Verhille
Montana State University
Department of Ecology

Dr. Christine Verhille is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology at MSU. She is interested in the physiological mechanisms limiting performance and resilience of fish populations in nature and applying this mechanistic knowledge to assess environmental tolerance limits of fish. She has studied the ecological physiology of diverse fish taxa in relation to a wide range of management applications ranging from guidance of rainbow trout stocking for sport fishing to operation of agricultural diversion structures and hydropower dams around federally protected green sturgeon and steelhead trout. She received her M.S. in Biology from the University of New Brunswick in 2006 and her Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2012.
