Research Expertise and Interest
freshwater ecology, biodiversity conservation, global change biology, Drought
Albert Ruhí is a freshwater ecologist interested in how aquatic biodiversity is responding to global change. Work in his lab largely focuses on the effects of drought stress, using a combination of monitoring, field experiments, and modeling of long-term hydrological and ecological data. Funded projects focus on advancing understanding of the ecological consequences of drying rivers, the potential of wetland restoration to recover ecosystem integrity, and how to mitigate the impacts that dams have on flow regimes and biodiversity in river networks.
