Jonathan Moore

Professor, Biological Science (Primary) and Resource and Environmental Management


  • BA, Biology, with honors, Carleton College
  • PhD, School of Aquatic and Fishery Science, University of Washington


Dr. Jonathan Moore is broadly interested in the ecology and management of aquatic ecosystems. General interests include biodiversity, watersheds, species interactions, biogeochemistry, subsidies, ecosystem engineers, disturbance, and global change. He does much of his work in the freshwaters that Pacific salmon call home and so, not surprisingly, works quite a bit on this group of ecologically important species. Dr. Moore and his students aim to do research that has conservation and management implications, and they use a combination of field experiments, field observations, and modeling.
