Dr. Eduardo Martins' research focuses on the ecology and conservation of freshwater fishes in temperate and tropical rivers. Specifically, his research aims to understand the thermal ecology, movement ecology, and population dynamics of freshwater fishes and how the generated knowledge can be applied to improve their management and conservation.
To conduct his research, Dr. Martins uses biotelemetry (e.g. radio, acoustic) and biologging (e.g. accelerometers) technologies to track and collect data from wild, free-ranging fish in freshwater. He also specializes in the use of advanced statistical models including spatial capture-recapture, hierarchical, and state-space models.
For his work with sockeye salmon in Canada, Dr. Martins was awarded a competitive postdoctoral fellowship by the Liber Ero Fellowship Program, which seeks “to support exceptional early-career scientists to conduct and communicate research that informs applied conservation and management issues".
Dr. Martins currently teaches the following courses at UNBC: BIOL 302 - Limnology; BIOL 325 - Ecological Analyses; and BIOL 409 - Conservation of Aquatic Ecosystems.
