Invasive species greatest threat to lakes, researcher says

Aquatic invasive species are a problem worldwide and the single biggest threat facing the Great Lakes, according to ecologist Hugh MacIsaac.

Campus mourns death of researcher

Researcher Martin Hulak died last week at the age of 33, but his pioneering work will live on, say professors who held him in high regard.

Dr. Hulak, a post-doctoral fellow working with Hugh MacIsaac and Melania Cristescu at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, was found dead outside his Windsor home on Wednesday, August 29. A native of Slovakia, he started working on campus in March 2012.
