“The interesting and complex world of stream algae is often poorly understood. My talk will introduce stream algae by taking a broad perceptive of algae and the vital roles it plays. This will be followed by a closer look at stream algae with an emphasis on contemporary issues in Sierra Nevada streams. I will close by discussing what the future may look like for stream algae in the Sierra.” Dr. Andy Rost
