About: Since 1988, Dr. Covich has worked with colleagues in Puerto Rico on the effects of urban growth, harvesting of freshwater shrimps and crabs, and intersections of road networks on river networks. For the past two years, he has collaborated with Brazilian colleagues in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul on food webs in karst streams that flow into the Pantanal, and he will resume this work in 2020. Some of his interests include impacts of floods and hurricanes on tropical stream food webs and drought impacts on terrestrial-freshwater linkages in temperate and tropical stream ecosystems.
