In general, my research group investigates how pharmaceuticals, endocrine disrupting chemicals, and other pollutants that might enter the enivronment through man-made means negatively affect the behavior of the fish living in these polluted waters. Behavior is both a very sensitive and rapid endpoint of exposure and has important fitness implications. We study many different behaviors that are important for species survival, from exploration to courtship. In addition to this overarching theme, we are also interested in how and why individuals,...
