Steve says:
“My freshwater career began through childhood encounters with Eels, leaping Salmon and Dippers - along with more nefarious activities involving tickling trout in Harle Syke's River Don.  After flirtations with appalling A-levels and the distractions of youth, I returned progressively to freshwater ecology via the Field Studies Council, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and a Cardiff Master's degree in Applied Hydrobiology  - where the late Ron Edwards let me loose on bigger things in the early 1980s.  Work on the effects on freshwater ecosystems of acid rain, changing land use and global warming all followed - invariably through a large-scale, long-term perspective.  I'll use this seminar to review some of the twists, turns and unexpected outcomes along this route, rounding off with a perspective on some success, failures and future options in freshwater ecosystem conservation.”
