Current research interests centre around the structure and productivity of estuarine biological communities, particularly in the Annapolis, various portions of the Bay of Fundy, the Miramichi, the United Kingdom, Argentina and Uruguay. Work includes studies of animal-sediment relationships; the dynamics of salt marshes in macro- and mesotidal systems; the interactions between pelagic and benthic organisms, and the biology of some dominant species of fish and invertebrates. Emphasis is placed upon holistic, multidisciplinary studies of estuaries. Research projects relate to the impacts of tidal power development, and the role of local communities in resource conservation and environmental management of coastal ecosystem.
