#7 - Dr. Daniel Schindler - Professor, School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, UW
Daniel Schindler has spent decades studying salmon in the Bristol Bay watershed. He’s a professor of fisheries sciences at the University of Washington. His research seeks to understand the causes and consequences of ecosystem dynamics. Of particular interest are the effects of changing climate on the feeding interactions between different animals, fisheries as large-scale drivers of ecosystem organization, the importance of anadromous fishes for linking ocean ecosystems to coastal aquatic and river systems, and the importance of aquatic-terrestrial coupling in ecosystem organization.
