The Entrekin Aquatic Entomology Lab aims to understand how aquatic macroinvertebrates process and transfer energy and cycle material in streams and wetlands. Our research quantifies how macroinvertebrate communities and their functions change in response to human activities to inform whole-ecosystem anthropogenic alterations. Our current research focuses on how watershed fragmentation, over-consumption​ of freshwater and contamination from agriculture, urbanization, and hydraulic fracturing interact to alter community structure and ecosystem functions in streams.
