Aquatic Ecology and Astacology Lab
at Nicholls State University
Research in the Aquatic Ecology and Astacology Lab at Nicholls State University focuses on the ecology and biology of Louisiana crayfishes and aquatic systems. Research efforts assess ecological functions of aquatic habitats, the effects of physical and chemical habitat characteristics on aquatic biota, physical and physiological responses of aquatic biota to environmental hypoxia, changes in physicochemistry and biotic communities due to natural and anthropogenic influences, and distribution, life history characteristics, and diversity of crayfishes throughout the state.

I see you. So much time and fancy equipment for sampling 🦞, I’ll just flip 🍁s instead. #AquaticEcologyAndAstacologyLab https://t.co/ljVqpczM6VRead More
A day late but here is some crawfish sex for Valentine’s Day, they even make a ❤️ shape when together. 🦞 #AquaticEcologyandAstacologyLab https://t.co/dZYxN4m5RaRead More
One of my favorite #AquaticEcologyAndAstacologyLab pics. It’s great to be surrounded by people that love to nerd out with you. 🦞@rissa_inselman @Alexa_Ballinger @gabby_sisson https://t.co/AAApGC1iOlRead More
