Adam Herdrich

I received my B. S. in Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from Colorado State University in the spring of 2012. During my undergrad years, I worked on two separate research projects 1) possible synergistic effects of multiple heavy metal contamination on stream macroinvertebrate communities in Dr. Will Clementsâ?? lab and 2) the thermal tolerance of the stonecat, a species of special concern in Colorado, in Dr. Chris Myrickâ??s lab. These two projects solidified my career path into aquatic ecology research, with an emphasis in stream restoration. After working at Colorado Parks and Wildlife as an aquatic technician I returned to CSU in the Colorado Coop Unit, working with Dr. Dana Winkelman, to earn a masterâ??s degree in ecology with my research focusing on what effects large in-stream woody debris has on eastern slope Rocky Mountain trout populations.
