The River Ecology and Management (REM) Team conducts basic and applied research on many aspects of aquatic ecosystems.  We focus on fluvial systems, from small streams to large rivers, with a particular emphasis on solving real-world conservation problems for aquatic species.  Recent large projects have focused on fish migration and fish passage, life history research on migratory species, winter ecology, forest-stream interactions, and fish-mussel host-parasite ecosystems. Our state-of-the-art stream aquarium facility allows us to conduct basic research year-round, to link ecological theory with our applied research.

We are a core group of eight senior researchers, with a number of graduate students. We maintain an extensive international network, with collaborators throughout Europe, North America, and beyond.  We also have a Master of Science program with an emphasis on stream ecology and management, accepting students each fall.
