Richard Lee

Professor Emeritus
Skidaway Institute of Oceanography

Toxicology, Marine Diseases, Marine Pollution

Issues of Interest:
Blue Crab diseases, non-point pollution from road runoff, sediment toxicity in estuarine sediments adjacent to road and urban/suburban areas.

Current Projects:

Monitoring coastal Georgia waters for a parasitic dinoflagellate, Hematodinium, which is associated with the dramatic decrease in the blue crab population.

Using a grass shrimp bioassay, where reproduction and embryo development are the endpoints, to assess the toxicity of estuarine sediments receiving runoff from roads, golf courses, and urban/suburban areas.
