Charles A. Simenstad

Research areas

Charles Simenstad is interested in studying shallow-water communities and food webs of estuarine and coastal marine ecosystems throughout Puget Sound, the Washington coast, and Alaska. Specific topics of research interest include: exploring the ecological mechanisms whereby estuarine and coastal wetlands support fish (especially juvenile Pacific salmon), basic ecosystem-, community- and habitat-level interactions with emphasis on predator-prey relationships, and enhancement of estuarine and coastal wetland ecosystems.
