Renee E. Bishop Pierce
Renée Bishop conducted doctoral and post-doc research in biological oceanography at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her initial focus was on age and growth of fish and eventually moved into the study of energetics and how organisms adapt to environmental challenges. At Penn State University, she began work on physiological adaptations to extreme environments and the ecological physiology of anchialine organisms. Most recently, she has begun work on the impacts of subterranean groundwater discharge on coastal ecosystems.
