Stanley Dodson

Stanley Dodson

Dr. Stanley Dodson received his Ph.D. from the Zoology Department of the University of Washington in 1970, on the interaction of size-selective predator-prey interactions and zooplankton community structure. He teaches and participates in research at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Stanley is a freshwater ecologist, focusing on community ecology of zooplankton and population ecology of Daphnia (the water flea). He has studied size-selective predation on zooplankton, Daphnia and copepod relationships, and effects of primary productivity on zooplankton biological diversity. His lab is currently investigating effects of land use (agricultural, urban, recreational) on zooplankton community structure.
