Michael Verhoeven

Community Ecologist


Mike Verhoeven is a community ecologist who works on lakes, fish, invasions, and plants. Much of his work starts with aggregating landscape scale datasets from disparate sources to investigate ecological responses to things like invasive species and climate change. His focus is on understanding the interactions between invasive and native species, and the impacts of inland lake management efforts (like invasive plant control). In his work he tries to incorporate both fundamental and applied ecology, and looks for ways to integrate observational studies and experimental work.
