Dr. Michot received his Ph.D. from LSU in Zoology and Physiology, after having earned an MS from Utah State University and a BS from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He worked for 30 years as a biologist with the U.S. Department of the Interior (Fish and Wildlife Service and USGS – National Wetlands Research Center). Now a Research Scientist with ICEE, Dr. Michot's research focus is on the ecology and management of coastal marshes, mangroves, and seagrass beds in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, and how wintering waterfowl and other birds use those habitats.
Current and recent projects deal with mangrove range expansion and freeze tolerance in coastal Louisiana; saltmarsh dieback in coastal Louisiana; changes in emergent marsh vegetation communities; habitat requirements of the ivory-billed woodpecker; effect of nutrient loading, salinity, water color, and light restriction on submersed aquatic vegetation in St. Johns River, Florida; hurricane impacts to seagrass beds and emergent marsh in coastal Louisiana, Honduras and Guatemala; distribution and abundance of colonial waterbirds in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas; waterfowl foraging ecology along Gulf coast.
Dr. Michot has published over 100 scientific papers and has made an equal amount of scientific presentations on these and other topics.
