Andrew Taylor

Shoal bass from lower Flint River


  • Ph D Oklahoma State University 2017
  • MS University of Georgia 2012
  • BS University of Georgia 2009

Research Interests

Broadly, my interests are the ecology, management, and conservation of stream fishes (game and non-game) that are endemic to the southeastern U.S. My PhD research addressed the influences of fragmentation on fluvial-specialist black bass species. Go Dawgs! Go Pokes!
