Brian Cumming's Full Profile 

We study how ecological and environmental change occurs in lakes over decades to millennia, from both natural (e.g., climate, fires) and human-based stressors (e.g. acidic deposition, nutrient enrichment, metal deposition, etc).   Our research encompasses understanding modern distributions of organisms and reconstructing past communities by exploiting the richness of the sedimentary record of lakes.  Understanding how lakes have changed over time helps us effectively manage aquatic systems. 

Brian is a co-applicant on the LEADERS CREATE Program.
