Leonard has a keen interest in applied freshwater ecology and his research interests include: drivers for local and regional biodiversity, the functioning of ecological (river) networks, the relationship between ecosystem structure and function, scale related issues in freshwater ecology, the importance of spatial and temporal variation in assessment and monitoring, and the effects of hydrological and morphological factors on freshwater organisms. Some of his recent projects and publications focuses on climate change effects on freshwater restoration measures, multiple pressure effects on riverine ecosystems, and the evaluation of the effects of restoration measures on freshwater organisms.
