As a research ecologist with the Water Quality and Ecology Research Unit in Oxford, MS, Dr. Lizotte has focused broadly on water quality and ecological aspects of aquatic ecosystems influenced by agricultural activity. His research has included laboratory aquatic toxicology, mesocosm and field-scale stream ecology, wetland systems as agricultural conservation practices, and watershed-scale field studies of multiple integrated best management practices.
Dr. Lizotte utilizes a variety of research techniques at various scales from laboratory, mesocosm, to large-scale field studies to elucidate how agricultural conservation practices can protect and enhance aquatic resources.
