Research interests include: (1) Ecology, life history, and effects of non-native species in aquatic systems. Assessment of ecological risks associated with nonnative aquatic species in natural systems and the use of these organisms in human activities such as sport fishing, the aquarium hobby, and aquaculture. (2) Tropical ornamental aquaculture, including commercial production and controlled spawning. (3) Ecology, life history, and taxonomy of freshwater fishes from the southeastern USA and from tropical regions worldwide.Dr. Hill employs a combination of field sampling and experimental studies to provide science-based information on nonnative aquatic species to natural resource agencies, industry, and other stakeholders.Recently, Dr. Hill has investigated the trophic ecology of morphologically similar, native and non-native predatory fishes; predation of non-native pest fish in aquaculture ponds; relative vulnerability of transgenic and wild-type ornamental fishes to predation; and predation by native fishes as a biological resistance to species invasions.
