My research focuses on direct and indirect effects of fish community interactions on a shredding caddisfly, Phylloicus hansoni. P. hansoni has an important functional role in leaf decomposition within Trinidadian streams and my research identifies how guppy and killifish interactions affect abundances and life history characteristics of caddisfly populations.
