Teague is a wildlife biologist with five years of experience conducting field research on many ecosystems, from estuaries and streams to high alpine lakes. She is a skilled taxonomist specializing in the identification of zooplankton, mysid shrimps, amphipods, macroinvertebrates, and bivalves in California’s Bay Area. Teague is currently developing knowledge of larval fish identification.
Teague’s previous work includes gathering macroinvertebrates from ephemeral streams for Shenandoah National Park and collecting and identifying benthic invertebrates in Suisun Bay for the United States Geological Survey. She has also monitored nesting Swainson’s hawks during the re-establishment of Sacramento’s levees and observed white-crowned sparrows’ nesting habits in Yosemite National Park.
Since joining us, Teague has deployed several types of fish survey methods, including beach seining, hoop nets, electrofishing, and trawls. She has experience in fish removal and relocation, water quality sampling, and the collection of zooplankton and mysid trawls. Teague performs data entry, sample tracking, and data analysis on the project databases she manages for senior biologists.
