Research Assistant Professor
Flathead Lake Biological Station
The University of Montana

I am a limnologist with interests in both lake and stream ecosystems. I am most interested in understanding the physical, biological and chemical factors that control the distribution and abundance of biota. The focus of my Flathead Lake research is on understanding those factors controlling the production of algae. Of the 300 largest lakes in the world, Flathead Lake is one of the most pristine.

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.

Stanford, Jack

Professor and Director
Division of Biological Sciences
Flathead Lake Biological Station

Jack A. Stanford is the Jessie M. Bierman Professor of Ecology and Director of the Flathead Lake Biological Station at The University of Montana, where he has worked since 1971. The Biological Station is a multi-disciplinary research and education center with 8 resident faculty and 20 staff members, including graduate students and post-doctoral scholars. Professor Stanford is well known internationally for his research on natural and cultural interactions in large river ecosystems. He has published 200 juried papers and books in limnology and ecology since receiving his Ph.D.

Valett, H. Maurice

Professor of Systems Ecology
Division of Biological Sciences - Systems Ecology
The University of Montana - Missoula

Dr. H. Maurice Valett is a Professor of Aquatic Biogeochemistry at the University of Montana’s Flathead Lake Biological Station. His research seeks to investigating how the form, abundance, and transformations of critical elements that regulate biological processes are influenced by human and environmental forces. This approach melds physical sciences (chemistry, hydrology, geomorphology) with ecological studies of living components.
