Wetlands and Waterways

Estuaries, streams, and wetlands provide invaluable resources to humankind, but also receive the brunt of human impacts on the landscape. We have conducted numerous ecological studies of fishes of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and of wetlands and streams throughout the Hudson Valley.

We have been studying American eels in the Hudson River tributaries for several years as part of an Atlantic Coast effort to understand the population crash of this once abundant fish.

We are writing a book on the biodiversity of the Hackensack Meadowlands in northeastern New Jersey, a large urban wetland complex that exemplifies how important urban wetlands can be for conservation.

Hudsonia, a tax-exempt not-for-profit corporation of the State of New York, classified 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service, relies on the generous, tax-deductible contributions from members of our community to sustain our research and education. We appreciate your support of our work.
