Roy W. Martin

As a graduate student at West Virginia University, I studied the effects of habitat fragmentation due to mining on stream fishes in central Appalachia. As an aquatic ecologist with Downstream Strategies, LLC in Morgantown, WV, I worked to assess and model fish habitat throughout the Midwest and Great Plains, USA for a project funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Midwest and Great Plains Fish Habitat Partnerships. As a Postdoctoral Fellow with the USEPA's Office of Research and Development, I am working to develop and integrate multiple layers of spatial information, including GIS data and data describing population dynamics, into spatially explicit models of population vulnerability and ecological condition. My focus has primarily been in aquatic ecology and current areas of specific interest include metapopulation and metacommunity ecology, landscape ecology, bioassessment, and restoration ecology.
