Dr. Shelley Arnott

I am a Professor of Biology at Queen’s University, specializing in Aquatic Ecology. I teach field courses, seminars, and ecology classes to help students understand the implications of human activities and environmental change on freshwater ecosystems.  Human activities change landscapes and the organisms that live there.  We investigate how aquatic communities respond and adapt to regional disturbance, including invasive species, calcium decline, and climate change, using a combination of field surveys, experiments, and lab studies.
