Associate Professor of Biology Brad Baldwin has been awarded a grant by the St. Lawrence River Research and Education Fund (SLRREF), which the New York Power Authority (NYPA) established as part of its relicensing of the St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project in 2003. The grant to Baldwin, for $18,942, was one of four awarded to projects "that will contribute to appreciation and understanding of the St. Lawrence River ecosystem," according to the authority.

The funding will be used to study the abundance and composition of bottom-dwelling organisms, assess major environmental conditions along the riverbed and investigate potential roles of exotic species in regulating mercury and botulism levels in the St. Lawrence River ecosystem.

"The funding from the St. Lawrence River Research and Education Fund will allow us to study how the introduction of exotic species into the stretch of the river from Waddington to Massena is affecting the fish and waterfowl that are part of the river ecosystem," Baldwin said.
