Oneida Lake and other inland lakes

Research on Oneida Lake is a major component of the CBFS program and is led by Zoe Almeida and Tony VanDeValk (fish and fisheries) and Rudstam (limnology). Jennifer Arnold and Steve Oswald from Penn State and Paul Curtis from Cornell continued their work on colonial waterbirds, Rebecca Schneider, and Todd Walter with PhD student Sol Lisboa (PhD in 2023) studied groundwater phosphorus input, Karim-Aly Kassam wrapped up his studies on ecological calendars, and Alexander Karatayev and Lyuba Burlakova studied Oneida Lake molluscs and effects on round goby. The Oneida program depends on our dedicated on-site research staff Tom Brooking, Kristen Holeck, Christopher Hotaling, Nikki Saavedra, Jake VanDeValk, and Cameron Davis. Oneida Lake is a site member of the Global Lakes Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) and part of several research projects comparing data from lakes across the world. In 2023, the fisheries data was used by research groups at DFO Canada (Hossain, Koops), SUNY Oneonta (Reyda on parasites of Oneida Lake fish), University of Wyoming (Fetzer), and NOAA-GLERL (Rutherford, Mason, Zhang), working on the coupling between phosphorus and fish, and by University of Minnesota (Hansen) studying year-class formation in walleye. Stephanie Figary, Jason Stockwell, and others used Oneida Lake zooplankton data for their worldwide study on zooplankton as indicators.
