Lindsey Reisinger is freshwater community ecologist and her research program focuses on benthic invertebrates and invasive species. Nonindigenous species can alter ecosystems and threaten global biodiversity, so understanding the conditions that promote invasion success and control the impacts of invaders is important for management of today’s ecosystems. Further, the addition of species to novel communities and environments provides natural experiments that are powerful tools for investigating questions in ecology and evolution. Reisinger is especially interested in how traits vary across the biogeographic range of species and how this variation affects ecological processes. She also studies interactions between native and invasive species, especially interactions between parasites and their hosts.
