Portrait of Gordon Holtgrieve

Gordon Holtgrieve

Assistant Professor

Aquatic & Fishery Sciences

Gordon Holtgrieve is an ecologist interested in understanding how terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems function and are connected. His work takes a whole-ecosystem perspective to consider how the physical, chemical, and biological properties of ecosystems interact to support the resources that society depends on. Gordon’s field research crosses diverse environments, from remote western North America to the southeast Asia as part of the Mekong Basing Research Group. His techniques range from site-based analysis of field data to global-scale mathematical and statistical modeling. Gordon seeks to inform conservation and resource management through research, which is rooted in the belief that effective policies for sustainability are based on sound science.
