Dr. Erica A. Garcia

Biography

Erica has an established track record of collaborative research in a variety of aquatic habitats (i.e. freshwater lakes, ponds, salt marshes and rivers). Erica uses a combination of observational, experimental, and isotopic approaches to study species interactions and biodiversity in a food web context to examine how these affect key ecosystem processes. Since 2008, she has been working as a lead researcher on TRaCK (Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge) projects examining bottom up and top down control of tropical river food webs and has also been focusing on quantifying aquatic and riparian invertebrate subsides in the NT. She has also collaborated with US researchers as part of the SCALER (Scale, Consumers and Lotic Ecosystem Rates) project and as part of a stream resiliency research collaboration network. She is also the NT representative on the executive committee of the Australian Society of Limnology.
