Pete Cadmus After completing my BS at the University of Wisconsin-Steven Point I held many odd jobs including: radiochemist, USFS recreation planner, high school science teacher, wildfire dispatcher, EMT, environmental educator, wilderness trip leader, ecology field tech… all related to science or science education. Most of my research with CSU and CDOW has examined the effects of mine pollution on macroinvertebrate communities. I have been volunteering or working for Will Clements’ lab for over eight years. My M.S. examined the effects of dietary and aqueous zinc on subcellular accumulation and feeding rates of mayflies. My current research attempts to improve how water quality standards are derived especially for stressors that have a limited direct toxicity in the laboratory but substantial indirect toxicity in the field.
