Research Interests:

Dr. Baguley's research program focuses on marine meiobenthic ecology.  Current research programs are based on three focal areas: deep-sea ecology, polar ecology, and ecotoxicology.  Dr. Baguley's deep-sea research interests include large-scale biotic/abiotic interactions, biodiversity, and broadening our understanding of both community structure and function.  Our polar meiobenthic research seeks to elucidate spatial and temporal dynamics of meiobenthic communities in these extreme environments.  Our ecotoxicology research includes both field-based environmental impact studies as well as mesocosm experiments to understand the effects of contaminants on meiobenthic community structure and function.
