Region: Hill Country
Topics: Fish, Biology, Springs, Aquifers, Water, Education
A professor in the Zoology Department of the
University of Texas,
Dr. Hubbs specialized in the study of desert spring fish. As these
fish are often rare and even endangered, Dr. Hubbs
was often not only a scholar but also a spokesman for the protection of wildlife.
He was particularly active in seeking to protect free-flowing
segments of rivers from dam construction, and in guarding stream spring
flows from overpumping of aquifers.
A collection of
additional materials related to Dr. Hubbs' work and life has
been posted by his former students and colleagues, organized as the
Hubbs Icthyological Society.
