Gordon Holtgrieve

Associate Professor

Gordon Holtgrieve is an ecologist interested in understanding how terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems function and are connected. His work considers 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 lakes and streams in remote western North America to the Mekong River in southeast Asia. His techniques range from site-based analysis of field data to global-scale mathematical and statistical modeling. Gordon is also the director of Future Rivers, a National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) to develop an innovative, culturally-aware STEM workforce fluent in state-of-the-art approaches for sustaining critical ecosystem services of freshwaters.
