Dr. Culp's current research investigates the combined effects of nutrients, sediments and insecticides on taxonomic and trait composition of stream benthos through integrated field and mesocosm investigations. Recent investigations also examine the development of aquatic biodiversity monitoring programs for the circumpolar Arctic, and the impacts of permafrost degradation on stream community structure and function. He works collaboratively with researchers across Canada and Europe.
