Dr. Xiao-Ning Zhang
Associate Professor of biology
216 Walsh Science Center
I enjoy all aspects of ecology, but my research focuses on running water environments, from small brooks to the Allegheny River, which runs along the southern edge of campus.
In the early 1990s Jim Miller and I developed a technique for tracing the movement of organic particles in streams, which we used in a small stream in Allegheny State Park.
From 1994-1998 I participated in a large, National Science Foundation-sponsored study of particle transport in Idaho streams. This study was funded by a $600,000 grant to Idaho State University and involved the use of radioactive tracers to track organic particles.
