Through droughts and floods, rivers and lakes are California’s life blood, sustaining both nature and our huge economy. Dr. Vincent Resh, Professor in UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, vividly brings to life the interplay of chemistry, geology, hydrology, and biology in these vital waters. Why, for example, can many plants and animals live in either lakes or streams but not both? Dr. Resh has taught at UC Berkeley since 1975, in a career that has ranged from restoring local Strawberry Creek to working on West African river blindness and Asian dams.
