Geology and biology meet in the history of US southwestern desert surface waters
Date:6/3/2008

Boulder, CO, USA The history of surface waters in the arid deserts of the U.S. southwestern Great Basin and lower Colorado River region has fascinated scientists for over two centuries. A new publication by the Geological Society of America covers a wide diversity of closed basins, ancient lake beds, and partially to fully integrated drainage systems that, says senior editor Marith C. Reheis of the USGS, "tantalizes scientists with the potential for studies of fundamental geologic and biologic processes."

These geologic and biologic processes include landscape evolution, climate history, tectonics, the distribution of regional aquatic biota, and the history of isolation and speciation. The book's 19 papers summarize and integrate geologic and biotic perspectives to provide a current synthesis of the aquatic history of this fascinating western North American region and to develop broader perspectives on the types of research on regional drainage history. Volume editors hope this book "will inspire further collaboration among earth scientists and biologists and serve as a springboard for future advances."

Late Cenozoic Drainage History of the Southwestern Great Basin and Lower Colorado River Region: Geologic and Biotic Perspectives is dedicated to Carl Leavitt Hubbs (1894-1979) and Robert Rush Miller (1916-2003) in honor of their pioneering studies of western North American fishes and aquatic biogeography and their leadership in the protection and conservation of native western fishes and their fragile habitats.
