Postdoctoral Research Associate Tony Timpano and M.Sc. graduate student Rachel Pence presented at the 2018 Society for Freshwater Science Annual Meeting in Detroit (May 20-24, 2018). Rachel Pence presented “Quantitative sampling of benthic macroinvertebrate communities and response to elevated salinity in central Appalachian coalfield streams” (view abstract). Tony Timpano presented “Freshwater salinization: multi-year study reveals natural seasonal salinity pattern, implications for macroinvertebrate life-cycle exposure” (view abstract).
The Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) is an international scientific organization whose purpose is to promote further understanding of freshwater ecosystems and ecosystems at the interface between aquatic and terrestrial habitats. SFS encourages interdisciplinary exchange through its meetings and journal publications.
