Making Waves Ep. 40

This month's episode features Sunny Jardine, professor of resource and environmental economics at the University of Washington School of Marine and Environmental Affairs. Dr. Jardine has worked with marine and freshwater ecologists in ecosystems such as mangroves, barrier islands and most recently inland lakes of Wisconsin. We discuss some basics of resource economics and her focus on understanding incentives and outcomes, the broad view economists take when trying to evaluate outcomes in human and natural coupled systems, and the challenges of studying recreational fisheries.

Making Waves Ep. 39

Contribute your freshwater knowledge to WikiProject Limnology & Oceanography! This month, we talk to two of the WikiProject’s leaders, Dr. Jake Zwart and Dr. Arial Shogren, about why we need more freshwater science on Wikipedia and how you can contribute your expertise. There will be a free workshop on editing Wikipedia at the SFS Annual Meeting in Salt Lake from 2-4:30 pm on Sunday, May 19 so be sure to sign up when you’re registering for the meeting.
