In this study, we are identifying the habitats, along with nearshore vegetation and substrates, that are key for the success of the emerald shiner during different life stages.
This study investigates if the population found in the Niagara River is genetically and morphologically similar or different from adjacent emerald shiner populations. This information is important for conservation purposes.
By using various laboratory techniques and looking at stomach contents of predators, we can determine if the emerald shiner is a key species in their diets.
In this project, we will investigate how bottlenecks in the river affect the movement of the emerald shiner by increasing water velocities.
