My research interests focus on marine top predator ecology, including habitat and resource use and community ecology. Particularly, the effect of environmental parameters on habitat and resource selection, as well as the influence of these parameters on grouping strategies. Recently, I have been mostly working on tropical dolphin behavior and ecology, but also on their interactions with human activities, particularly fisheries in the western Indian and South Pacific Oceans. As predation risk is a significant factor driving tropical dolphin habitat use and grouping behavior, I investigate the ecology and ecological roles of sharks in various ecosystems, particularly coral reefs. I am working on a number of taxa and questions, including the non-consumptive (risk) effects of predators on mesopredators. Contact: jeremy.kiszka@fiu.edu | Follow on Twitter
