University research is essential to discovery. Discovery is what helps us better understand our world.
Anytime evolution is part of research, it’s bound to get attention.
University of Nebraska-Lincoln stream ecologist Steven Thomas is working collaboratively on a project that "is providing empirical data on how a species and its environment change in tandem."

Congrats on your groundbreaking work, Dr. Thomas. Go Big Red.
