November 26 - Dr. Leesia Marshall

KFF monthly general meeting
Monday, November 26, 2018
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

If you've ever picked up one of those state-based fishing books, eg. "Fly Fishing Utah", then you know that each river has a story. As it flows from a tiny headwater downstream and widens, a series of changes occur. Not just in the river, but in the food webs and aquatic communities.

The scientific framework for describing how these flowing ecosystems change is the River Continuum Concept. This concept is especially important to us flyfishers since, more than any other angler group, we target all realms of the river ecosystem, from headwaters to deltas.

To tell us about the Concept this month is Dr. Leesia Marshall. Leesia is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at LSU-Alexandria. She does research in Limnology, Ecology, Ornithology and Animal Communications.

Please join us to hear Leesia talk on this fascinating subject! As always, the public is welcome! Bring a friend!

** This will be our last meeting for 2018 as we break for the holidays. We'll restart our general meetings the 4th Monday in January. **
