Dr. Clark Hubbs

Region: Hill Country

Topics: Fish, Biology, Springs, Aquifers, Water, Education

A professor in the Zoology Department of the University of Texas, Dr. Hubbs has specialized in the study of desert spring fish. As these fish are often rare and even endangered, Dr. Hubbs has often been not only a scholar but also a spokesman for the protection of wildlife. He has been particularly active in seeking to protect free-flowing segments of rivers from dam construction, and in guarding stream spring flows from overpumping of aquifers.
