Robert Wallace associated with recent articles about multi-year study

Robert L. Wallace, professor of biology and the Patricia and Philip McCullough 1969 Professor in Biology at Ripon College, was mentioned in an article published March 13, 2018, by EurekAlert: The Global Source for Science News.

“Team discovers that wind moves microinvertebrates across desert” addresses how the work of faculty and students from The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) has yielded the first evidence of how waterborne microinvertebrates move across vast expanses of arid desert, and how this might have implications for freshwater systems.

An article published in Limnology and Oceanography Letters, a publication of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, and in the El Paso Herald-Post details for the first time how high desert winds disperse small invertebrates and how they colonize hydrologically disconnected basins throughout the region.

Wallace is a coauthor of that article and a participant in the multi-year interdisciplinary research effort.
