Freshwater, Marine, and Wetland Ecology Research

Freshwater, Marine, and Wetland Ecology graphic image

Departmental researchers in this area study organisms and biological processes in freshwater, marine, and wetland ecosystems. This research makes us of local resources such as the University of Mississippi Field Station, Sardis Lake, or the Mississippi River, and goes further afield to the Gulf of Mexico and marine environments around the world.
