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.
