Intersex Sturgeon on the Missouri River? The effects of emerging contaminants on a big river
presentation by Diana Papoulias, PhD. Fish Biologist, retired from U.S. Geological Survey NOTE - This month's venue has changed to Healthy Rivers Partnership offices In 2000, research fish biologist Diana Papoulias began documenting an uptick in previously rare cases of intersex shovelnose sturgeon.

Papoulias will share what her research has revealed, and what questions remain about the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals on fish.
