Where Science and Public Policy Meet: A Roundtable Discussion
What happens when science and public policy meet? What is good science? How do we prioritize research? What does peer review mean? These questions and more were the focus of a 1999 roundtable discussion between Foundation Chief Writer Sue McClurg and Education Director Judy Wheatley with four fishery biologists: Bruce Herbold, U.S. EPA; Elise Holland, formerly with The Bay Institute; Peter Moyle, fisheries professor at UC Davis; and Peter Rhoads, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. Topics discussed include CALFED restoration goals, endangered species, Bay – Delta conflicts, salmon populations and water supply.
