Judith Weis is an estuarine ecologist, who is especially interested in responses of estuarine animals to stresses, such as pollution, invasive species, and parasites. Climate change, (both increased temperatures and acidification) in addition to causing its own effects, will probably exacerbate effects of these other stresses.
