The NRRV (English: River Ecology and Management, RivEM) research group conducts basic and applied research on aquatic ecosystems. We focus on fluvial systems, from small streams to large rivers, with a particular emphasis on solving real-world conservation problems. Ongoing and recent large projects have focused on ecological effects of dam removal, fish migration and passage in regulated rivers, life-history research on migratory species, ecological connectivity and modeling, winter ecology of stream fishes in relation to climate change, aquatic-terrestrial exchanges and fish-mussel host-parasite systems. We maintain an extensive international network, with collaborators throughout Europe, North America, and beyond. We also offer a Master of Science program with emphasis on ecology and conservation biology, accepting students each fall.
