Gordon Holtgrieve

  • Assistant Professor, School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences

Dr. Holtgrieve is an ecosystem ecologist with wide-ranging interests including how animals control ecosystem functioning, terrestrial-aquatic linkages, global biogeochemical cycles, and fisheries conservation. His research focuses on understanding how ecological diversity leads to productivity and stability in aquatic systems, sources and transfer of carbon through aquatic food webs, and how animals interact with their physical environment to control biogeochemical cycling. His research groups uses stable isotope techniques to elucidate biogeochemical processes at local to global scales and applies hierarchical and Bayesian statistical modeling techniques to biogeochemical data.
