BRIDGES is a recurring feature of FWS intended to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information relevant to FWS readers, but beyond the usual scope of a scientific paper. Articles in this series bridge from aquatic ecology to other disciplines (such as political science, economics, education, chemistry, or other biological sciences). Papers may be complementary or take alternative viewpoints. Authors or guest editors with ideas for topics should contact BRIDGES Editors, Ashley Moerke (amoerke@lssu.edu) or Allison Roy (aroy@eco.umass.edu).
