Research in the Hoeinghaus Lab examines dynamics of populations, communities and ecosystems. Our fish-centric program seeks to test and advance ecological concepts, while maintaining direct application to pressing problems in conservation biology and the sustainable use of natural resources. Freshwater ecosystems are excellent settings for our research because of their high biodiversity and endemism, social and economic importance, and unparalleled impacts to their habitats and species. Current field settings include streams and rivers in the Southern Great Plains of North America (Texas), and streams, large floodplain rivers, and coastal lagoon ecosystems in the Neotropics (Brazil).
