Here in the Binning lab, we are generally interested in how fish (and other aquatic organisms) are affected by different environmental stressors. These stressors include things like low oxygen, parasites, water flows, temperature, low pH, etc. We try to figure out what behavioural, morphological and/or physiological effects these stressors have on populations and species, especially with respect to how animals move (locomotor performance and movement behaviours). We are especially fascinated by variation within species (intraspecific differences) along natural environmental gradients. We use techniques like respirometry, video tracking, biologgers, blood sampling and direct observation to address questions in marine and freshwater systems in both the field and the lab.
