HARC Fellow, Bob McFarlane, Jim Lester, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Lisa Gonzalez, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, published a paper in the journal Ecosphere titled, “The effect of four environmental parameters on the structure of estuarine shoreline communities in Texas, USA”.

The paper addresses how temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity effect the abundances of 64 estuarine species captured along the Texas Coast. It has applicability in the freshwater inflows policy discussion and the ecological function and estuarine community organization literature.
