Photographer Marsha Miller captures stunning images of the Forty Acres of the countless green spaces providing sanctuary to native and adapted species, from red-eared sliders in the turtle pond and water fowl in Waller Creek, to our resident falcon perched above us all.
The ecosystems that freshwater fish depend on are begin degraded at a massive scale globally. Dr. Gary Garrett of UT's Ichthyology Collection has found that nearly half of all native Texan fish are threatened.
On April 17th, we will celebrate Biodiversity Day as well as Earth Day. Photographer Kathryn Gatliff recently visited the Billie L. Turner Plant Resources Center to learn about research on plant diversity.
