A Review of the Florida Keys Carrying Capacity Study Appendix A Committee Member Biographies Scott W. Nixon, Chair University of Rhode Island Scott W. Nixon is professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island. His research interests include the ecology of estuaries, bays, lagoons, marshes, and other coastal ecosystems. Recent research focuses on the fundamental processes that determine the primary and secondary productivity of these environments, with particular emphasis on the importance of nutrient enrichment and other forms of anthropogenic impact. He also conducts ecosystem-level experiments using mesocosms and comparative and historical ecology. Dr. Nixon has previously served on three NRC committees and is currently serving as the vice-chair of the Committee on the Restoration of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem. Dr. Nixon received a B.A. in biology from the University of Delaware and a Ph.D. in botany/ecology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. George H. Dalrymple Everglades Research Group, Inc. George H. Dalrymple is chief scientist of the Everglades Research Group, Inc. He previously served for 17 years as an associate professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Florida International University. His areas of expertise include wildlife and environmental biology, vertebrate zoology, herpetology, natural resources management, and Everglades, wetlands, and restoration ecology.

Robert E. Deyle Florida State University Robert E. Deyle is an associate professor in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at Florida State University. His expertise is in environmental planning and policy analysis, coastal hazards planning and management, and plan implementation. Recent research focuses on risk-based taxes for hazard management and planning for hazard mitigation and post-disaster recovery. Dr. Deyle received his B.A. in biology from Dartmouth College, his M.S. in environmental management from Duke University, and his Ph.D. in environmental science from the State University of New York, Syracuse. Wayne C. Huber Oregon State University Wayne C. Huber is professor of civil, construction, and environmental engineering at Oregon State University. Prior to coming to Oregon State in 1991, he served for 23 years on the faculty of the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences at the University of Florida where he engaged in several studies involving the hydrology and water quality of South Florida regions. His research principally involves surface hydrology, stormwater management, nonpoint source pollution, and transport processes related to water quality. He is one of the original authors of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) and continues to maintain the model for the EPA. Dr. Huber received his B.S. in engineering from the California Institute of Technology and his M.S. and Ph.D. in civil engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is currently a member of the NRC’s Committee on the Restoration of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem. Mark S. Peterson University of Southern Mississippi Mark S. Peterson is an associate professor in the Department of Coastal Sciences of the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of Southern Mississippi. His research focuses on nekton (fish and decapods) resource ecology with particular emphasis on factors affecting recruitment success in estuarine-dependent fishes and the tradeoffs made by nekton when living in different habitats. Specific research projects include the ecology and impact of non-native fishes in coastal marsh ecosystems; delineation and mapping of essential fish habitat of ecologically and economically important nekton; and comparison of habitat use along

Stephen Polasky University of Minnesota Stephen Polasky is the Fesler-Lampert Professor of Ecological/Environmental Economics in the Departments of Applied Economics and Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. Before taking his current position at the University of Minnesota, he served as senior staff economist for environment and resources for the President’s Council of Economic Advisors from 1998 to 1999. His research interests include biodiversity conservation, common property resources, and environmental regulation. Dr. Polasky holds a B.A. from Williams College and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan; he has also studied at the London School of Economics. Norbert P. Psuty Rutgers University Norbert P. Psuty is a professor in the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Cook College, Rutgers University. In addition, Dr. Psuty serves as associate director of the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences. His areas of expertise include coastal geomorphology, shoreline erosion, and coastal zone management. Recent research focuses on coastal zones with a specialization in shoreline processes and sedimentation, including shoreline erosion, coastal dune processes, and estuarine sedimentation related to sea-level rise. Dr. Psuty received a B.S. in geography from Wayne State University, an M.S. in geography from Miami University of Ohio, and a Ph.D. in geography from Louisiana State University. Malcolm D. Rivkin University of Maryland Malcolm D. Rivkin is a senior fellow in the School of Public Affairs at the University of Maryland and executive director of the Smart Growth Alliance, a consortium of business, environmental, and civic groups in the Washington, D.C., region.
