Mike Marshall - University of GeorgiaMike is postdoctoral researcher in the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia. He is an ecosystem ecologist with experience in biogeochemistry and geohydrology. Mike's research interests have focused on identifying the role of animals in ecosystem processes, with particular consideration to animals as drivers of ecosystem processes and how these roles change in an evolutionary context. He has abundant research experience in freshwater ecosystems in remote locations in Alaska, Wyoming, New Mexico and Guyana. In the FIBR Trinidad project he is examining how nutrient cycling in streams is affected by excretion from guppies of different adaptive phenotypes. Utilizing stream channel mesocosms and small electrified exclosures he is also looking at the direct and indirect effects of fishes and other macroconsumers on ecosystem processes such as leaf decomposition, algal accrual and benthic metabolism.
