Aquatic Community Ecology

USGS scientists quantify and describe functional relationships among aquatic species and habitats to describe aquatic community structure, function, adaptation, and sustainability. By conducting basic research on ecosystem structure, functions and processes, this science links biology, population genetic diversity, and organism health for fish, native mussels, and other aquatic organisms in relation to their habitat requirements. The science contributes to understanding ecological processes and patterns of diversity through coordination, development, and standardization of geospatial classification models and maps of national ecosystems.
