Adam E. Rosenblatt
I grew up in Philadelphia, went to college in Ohio, got my PhD in Miami, did a postdoc in Connecticut, and worked at the U.S. Department of Energy. Currently I'm an assistant professor of biology at the University of North Florida. I've done ecology research all over the world on an eclectic array of species: tree swallows in Ohio; sharks, turtles, and stingrays in Australia; manatees in Belize; humpback whales in Hawai'i; dolphins in New Zealand; sharks and alligators in Florida; black caiman in Guyana; and spiders and grasshoppers in Connecticut.
My main research interests are 1) investigating the roles that large predators play in determining the structure and function of ecosystems and 2) investigating the potential effects of climate change and land use change on ecosystem and food web dynamics. Currently I am developing my research program at the University of North Florida with a focus on alligators, sea turtles, and grasshoppers. I also actively collaborate with a black caiman research project based in Yupukari, Guyana.
I enjoy discussing my research and broader topics like climate change with the public, and I am available for speaking engagements. Feel free to get in touch with me using my contact info. I am also a consultant for the entertainment industry through The Science and Entertainment Exchange.
