Dr. David Post is an aquatic ecologist who conducts research on food web structure and dynamics, the influence of environmental change on community structure and ecosystem function, spatial linkages among ecosystems, and the importance of interactions between ecology and evolution for community and ecosystem processes. He began working in the Mara in 2010, studying the role of large animals in moving resources from the terrestrial to the river ecosystem, and using stable isotope techniques to understand the resulting impacts on the river food web.
