In this month's episode, Stephen Cook explains what eutrophication is and why it matters for benthic macroinvertrebrates in streams. He also talks about what it was like to work on a project with direct policy implications.

Stephen Cook is a Doctoral Candidate at Baylor University, and uses natural experiments to understand drivers of biodiversity at multiple scales. His research focuses on how nutrient enrichment is influencing natural patterns of seasonality present in stream communities across a large phosphorus gradient.
