4/17/2013 Desert Fishes: Behind the granite curtain

The term desert fish is a misnomer, as all of our fishes are left over from earlier and wetter times. Steve Parmenter will retrace the routes over which the ancestors of modern fishes arrived in the Eastern Sierra and evolved into the current species. He will also describe threats to the continued existence of our diverse fishes, and argue that one species, the Owens pupfish, could readily recover from its critical endangerment through the application of a few low-tech methods.
