Findlay, Stuart E. G.
B.A., University of Virginia; M.S., University of South Carolina; Ph. D., University of Georgia. Scientist, Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Millbrook, New York. Articles in scientific journals including Ecological Applications, Estuaries, New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research, and Limnology and Oceanography. Served on advisory panels and committees, including Hudson River Estuary Management Advisory Committee, New Jersey Sea Grant Science Advisory Committee and Proposal Review Panel, Estuarine Research Federation, Hudson River Museum, and Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee of the USEPA. Current research focuses on microbial ecology of subsurface stream sediments, functional assessment of wetlands, and the Hudson River ecosystem. Research interests include land-use effects on water quality; contribution of dissolved organic carbon to aquatic microbial food webs; the relationship between community structure and gradients of microbial function; the effects of human-induced changes in tidal marsh vegetation on nutrient retention and other wetland functions; and the contribution of submersed aquatic vegetation to organic matter and oxygen budgets of the Hudson River.
