Drs. Johnson, Coughlan, publish article in journal
Dr. Ronald Johnson, Zoology, along with co-authors Dr. Stephen Coughlan and recent graduate student Travis Harmon, recently published an article in the journal Ecology of Freshwater Fish. The article, "Spatial and temporal variation in prey selection of brown trout in a cold Arkansas tailwater," was the result of a grant from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Brown trout find limited prey in the cold tailwaters below Greers Ferry Dam, since fish other than trout have been completely removed from the upper Little Red River. Food sources consist chiefly of rice-grain sized invertebrates and, occasionally, smaller trout. Trout growth has become limited by this diet, according to the article.

Dr. Ogendi was also one of five panelists in a UNESCO-sponsored Man and the Biosphere session on river cultures and ecological futures. This panel discussed the fundamental role of culture in sustainable utilization of water resources along the world's river ecosystems.
