Making Waves: Elizabeth Anderson

Making Waves is the podcast of the Society for Freshwater Science

Episode 21: River Conservation in Tropical Regions, Dr. Elizabeth Anderson

Elizabeth Anderson

This month's podcast features Dr. Elizabeth Anderson discussing her work on tropical rivers and her approaches to river conservation.

Dr. Anderson is the Co-Director of the Tropical Conservation Institute at Florida International University. Her research explores the natural history of tropical freshwaters and aims to understand how these ecosystems are being transformed by the realities of today's world: river alterations, climate change, human population growth, and introduced species, among others. Her mission is to translate this science into methods, policies, and approaches that can be used to sustainably manage or conserve tropical freshwater ecosystems.
