Research Interests/Professional Service
Two of us started the Berkshire Environmental Research Center LTD in 1985. We have been doing lake management, wetlands delineations, fisheries studies etc since that time. Dr. Coote has taken over main responsibilities recently. We often hire students if the project warrants.
I am on the Board of Directors of the Housatonic River Initiative which is concerned with the PCB pollution of the local river.
