Congratulations to Dr. Krista Capps, a River Basin Center affiliate and professor at the University of Georgia, who authored the most read article of Freshwater Science within the past 12 months. Her research article, “Poverty, urbanization, and environmental degradation: urban streams in the developing world”, focuses on how an increase in urbanization is affecting the water resources of lower-income countries. Capps and her colleagues highlight the importance of integrative technologies and management techniques to best understand urban watersheds in these developing areas. Her publication has topped the charts, and UGA is proud of Capps’ continuing success.
