Dr. Albert Burky was a professor in the Department of Biology. His areas of research included the physiological adaptations and energetics of natural populations of snails, clams, crustaceans and fish. His experimental approach involves measurements of growth, reproduction and metabolism, and the assessment of energy strategies in relation to environmental conditions. His most recent research has involved the application of micro-flow meters to analyses of habitat utilization of aquatic fish and invertebrates in streams of Ohio and in rainforest mountain streams of the islands of Maui and Hawaii.
