Aquatic Resources and Integrative Biology at Texas State University emphasizes original research and is designed to provide depth and breadth of knowledge in the field of aquatic resources and related disciplines, including basic and applied research, management, and policy.


Key facts:

Sustainable freshwater resources provide a foundation for aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, as well as human use and economic development. However, inadequate understanding of aquatic resources and a prevailing inability to properly integrate scientific, technical, and socioeconomic elements continues to seriously hinder the goal of providing sustainable aquatic resources, not only in Texas but across the nation and around the world.

Aquatic Resources and Integrative Biology is offered at Texas State University.
