New book

u hoesei cover

We have just finished a new book. This one is on mites–mites have long been the focus of my interest. I wrote both a thesis and a dissertation and now 6 books about them. These mites do not have an immediate link to prairies, but they are linked. They occur in mussels in streams that drain prairie soils, and the loss of the hydrological features that create streams by runon recharging of springs that feed the streams and bayous and rivers. The loss of this recharging is destroying our rivers–the home of the mussels and their mites. What happens in the prairies dramatically affects life in the streams.
