The topic for this episode is freshwater research at the border. We hear in the news about how the president’s proposed border wall will disrupt wildlife such as big cats and butterflies, but we hear little about how it will affect freshwater and freshwater species. Considering watershed boundaries rarely match political boundaries, creating a physical barrier across a watershed would likely change aspects of the system. I wanted to learn a little more about what kind of freshwater research happens here in the border region, especially since it’s such a tense atmosphere to work in. So, I reached out to four aquatic specialists in Tucson, Arizona, to see what kind of binational projects they work on at the border, the barriers these projects face, the benefits of binational projects, and tune in for the bonus fourth question!

This month's featured article: Daniel C. Allen, Darin A. Kopp, Katie H. Costigan, Thibault Datry, Bernard Hugueny, Dale S. Turner, Gita S. Bodner, and Timothy J. Flood. Citizen scientists document long-term streamflow declines in intermittent rivers of the desert southwest, USA. Freshwater Science 38(2): 244-256.
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.
