A large Chinook salmon with a red under belly and sides swims with smaller Omykiss in the background.
This research proposes a method to assess the distribution of environmental resistance of stream ecosystems to biological invasions by coupling multi-stage habitat potential models for non-native species.


Water runs through Stawberry Creek, a small mountain creek with bolders and edged with trees.
Researchers sampled 16 coastal watersheds in Oregon for current-use water-borne herbicides commonly used in forestland vegetation management. Models predicted south coast sites have higher than average herbicide concentrations, which aligns with findings.
idy pieces of plastic pollution lay on the beach along the tide line.
This thesis conducted interviews with Oregon stakeholders interested in microplastic pollution and evaluated baseline attitudes towards its management.
Devil's Lake in Oregon. Homes line the shore.with evergreens.
This plan provides a framework and pathway forward to address water supply and use challenges in the mid-coast region, and sustainably balance water needs for people and native fish and wildlife.
