Is predation an important selection force in freshwater systems? This question has been a consistent theme in almost all the different projects I have been involved in, throughout my career. My research has involved many different organisms, from snails to piscivorous fish, and I have been working with interactions at different organisational levels, from individual behaviour to the structure and function of ecosystems. At present, I am involved in four different projects where I study the effects of predator-prey interactions on:

  • Evolution of inducible defences
  • Seasonal migration in freshwater fishes
  • Recruitment of juvenile piscivorous fish.
  • Living in a Landscape of Fear
