My research investigates the role of pathogens in biological invasions and their potential use to control invasive crayfish populations. First, I will identify the pathogens present in native and invasive crayfish species within Wisconsin. Then I will select a few candidate pathogens for laboratory studies to observe the potential effects on behavior and mortality of both native and invasive crayfishes, with hopes of identifying a pathogen that will decrease the survival or competitive ability of the Rusty Crayfish.
