One Small Step for Bugs

Like the inhabitants of the tragically fated Roman city of Pompeii, which fell victim to fallout from the Vesuvius volcano, benthic macroinvertebrate organisms in long-established communities along the river bottom received no warning of the oncoming catastrophe. They, like their human counterparts separated by millennia (and phylum), may have seen

Working in the back country, far off road, increases the chances of encountering mountain lions, rattlesnakes, or other creatures best avoided. And if it’s hot and

Dry States’ Power Landscapes

Dry States’ Power Landscapes
