Eby, Lisa

Associate Professor
Ecosystem and Conservation Sciences
The University of Montana - Missoula

Each year, I teach Fish Biology, Advanced Fisheries, Research Design, and Special Topics in Aquatic Ecology. I work to collaborate with management and conservation agencies to identify key questions and unknowns in our scientific understanding that is critical for management decisions. My research involves a range of projects.

MS 1985, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Curriculum in Ecology.
SB 1978, Cornell University. Ecology and Systematics.
I have worked in a technical capacity with a broad array of ecosystem research, from upland catchments to pelagic oceans, centering on interdisciplinary, process-oriented ecology.

Kershner, Jeff

Center Director
Ecology
USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center

For most of my career, I’ve worked on a variety of issues that are related to the effects of land management practices on aquatic and riparian resources. My past research includes work on native salmonids in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming, explores various aspects of aquatic and riparian resource monitoring, and looks at fire effects on streams and riparian areas.

Muhlfeld, Clint

Research Aquatic Ecologist and Research Associate Professor
Systems Ecology
USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center and The University of Montana Flathead Lake Biological Station

I am a Research Aquatic Ecologist for the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center in Glacier National Park and Research Associate Professor at The University of Montana's Flathead Lake Biological Station. My general research interests encompass the fields of aquatic ecology, fisheries biology, and conservation biology.

Payn, Robert

Assistant Professor
Dept. of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

My research focus is hydroecology, which is the study of the interaction of life with water in its environment. More specifically, I study the interactions of hydrological, chemical, and biological processes that determine the biogeochemical patterns observed in streams, rivers, and wetlands. Currently, my preferred approach is to use mechanistic simulation models to explore hypotheses, and then compare simulation results with field data to test and refine the hypotheses inherent in the model.

Zale, Alexander

Professor and Unit Leader
Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit and Ecology
Montana State University - Bozeman

I lead, coordinate, and administer an applied fisheries research program addressing topics and issues of concern to the State of Montana and the U.S. Department of the Interior. Technical areas of special emphasis include restoration of native fishes, whirling disease, thermal ecology, population dynamics and effects of exotic fishes, and effects of environmental degradation on recreational salmonid fisheries. I advise graduate students and teach a graduate level course entitled Human Dimensions of Fish and wildlife Management.
