Brief Research Interests: 

Polar zooplankton ecology


Lab: Burt 280 and 282

Research Interests

The primary motivation behind my research is to understand how natural and anthropogenic forces influence plankton community structure and trophic interactions in marine pelagic ecosystems.  My research focus is in the area of polar zooplankton ecology.

Beaver Research Champion

Beaver Research Champion Kim Bernard leads the Zooplankton Ecology Lab at OSU studying how climate change and other anthropogenic disturbances alter zooplankton ecology at the individual, population, and community levels and thus the structure and function of marine ecosystems and services.
