Telephone Town Hall: Gravel Bed River Ecosystems
From bull trout to wolves and grizzly bears, gravel bed river ecosystems are crucial habitat for an enormous diversity of wildlife throughout across the Yellowstone to Yukon region.
For Y2Y's Spring Telephone Town Hall on April 15, ecologist and Y2Y Board member, Dr. Mark Hebblewhite, explained why these ecosystems are so vitally important.
Using examples from his own research, Dr. Hebblewhite summarized the life-long work of Dr. Ric Hauer, Professor of Limnology at the University of Montana, along with other colleagues, to show why these river systems are so important to conserve.
