Carissa Ganong

Ph.D. Ecology, 2015

Short Bio:

My research focuses on climate-driven acidification in Neotropical streams and is centered at La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica. I am currently examining biogeochemical causes of acidification (carbon dioxide, metal redox, and DOC influxes), and quantifying the resistance of dominant macroinvertebrate taxa to episodic acidification.
