伊尔卡 • 费勒(坎迪)(Ilka Feller (Candy))

史密森尼环境研究中心资深科学家

坎迪 • 费勒 (Candy Feller) 是昆虫与植物生态学家,专门研究化肥流出的额外营养物对红树林系统的长期影响。

红树林的健康给以红树林为苗圃或觅食区的海洋食物网以及靠红树林为生的人们带来“涟漪效应”。

At the Animal-Plant Interaction Lab at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), Candy studies the potential long-term impact of small doses of nitrogen and phosphorus used in commercial fertilizers on mangrove ecosystems.

Candy first began exploring swamps in her grandmother’s backyard as a child. Today, she has long-term experimental research sites in the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, Belize, Panama, Florida and the Gulf of California, with new research sites starting in Bangladesh and Myanmar. Candy earned her Ph.D. in Ecology from Georgetown University. 

Candy is the Chair of the July 2016 Mangrove & Macrobenthos Meeting (MMM4) in St. Augustine, FL. MM4 is an international conference on mangrove ecosystems convened at 4 to 6 year intervals.
