My research interests lie in the interactions amongst biota, their interactions with their abiotic environment, and how this environment is shaped by local and global drivers, or disturbed by stressors (e.g., climate change, pollution, or land use changes). This requires me to think and work collaboratively across multiple disciplines, a challenge which I greatly enjoy.
I am the Senior Fisheries Biologist for the Omineca Region at the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD), and continue research on freshwater fish in BC and elsewhere as adjunct faculty at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, BC.
On this personal site, I provide regularly updated summaries of my teaching, research projects, and publications. For more instant updates, find me on Twitter (@nikolausgantner).
