Speaker Name: 
Dr. Bob Gresswell
Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center

Dr. Bob Gresswell is an emeritus research biologist with the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center and an affiliate assistant professor in the Department of Ecology at Montana State University.  His research is focused on the factors that influence fish abundance, distribution, and life history within, and among watersheds, and how these relationships change in through time.  Gresswell's interest in the role of disturbance in shaping the aquatic systems has led to research on the interactions among landscape-scale environmental features, instream habitat characteristics, and cutthroat trout abundance and distribution.  Currently, his research is focused on the effects of fire, timber harvest, invasive species, and climate change on the persistence of native trout in the Intermountain West.  He has been involved with the lake trout issue in Yellowstone Lake since these invaders were first discovered in 1994 and act as chair of the lake trout suppression independent scientific review panel that was formed in 2008. He received an M.S. in Wildlife Science from Utah State University and a Ph.D. in Fisheries Science from Oregon State University.
