An Energy Diet: Cut Back on Water, Pay More Attention to Fish
The water-energy nexus is the subject of huge debate and research: How can the United States meet future energy demands while conserving precious water resources? The focus has mostly been on how various energy sources impact both water quantity and quality, with little attention paid to what this means for fish and other freshwater biodiversity.

Ecologically, morphologically and genetically distinct populations within single taxa often coexist in postglacial lakes and have provided important model systems with which to investigate ecological and evolutionary processes such as niche partitioning and ecological speciation.
It is with great pleasure that the College of the Environment Dean, Lisa Graumlich, announces the visit of Dr. Jane Lubchenco to the University of Washington Seattle campus on Monday, November 26. Dr. Lubchenco will be in town for the announcement of the recommendations from the Governor’s Ocean Acidification Blue Ribbon Panel on the 27th. In advance of this event, Dr.Read more

Can interbreeding of wild and artificially propagated animals be prevented by using broodstock selected for a divergent life history?
Evol Appl. 2012 Nov;5(7):705-19
Authors: Seamons TR, Hauser L, Naish KA, Quinn TP
TWO STRATEGIES HAVE BEEN PROPOSED TO AVOID NEGATIVE GENETIC EFFECTS OF ARTIFICIALLY PROPAGATED INDIVIDUALS ON WILD POPULATIONS: (i) integration of wild and captive populations to minimize domestication selection and (ii) segregation of released individuals from the wild population to minimize interbreeding.
This event will take place at today, November 11, 2012 at 11:00PM.Read more
