Dr. Höök is particularly interested in environmental questions at the interface between applied and basic ecology. To address such questions I use an adaptive research approach and employ a variety of research methods (e.g., field sampling, controlled experiments, statistical analysis, simulation modeling). The focus of my research is fish and fisheries ecology in the Laurentian Great Lakes. However, I also study lower trophic level organisms and both smaller freshwater and larger marine ecosystems.
