APPENDIX B 383 ROBERT J. HUGGETT is professor of zoology and vice president for research anti graduate studies at Michigan State University anti professor emeritus of marine science at the College of William anti Mary. His aquatic- biochemistry research has involvecI the fate anti effects of hazardous sub- stances in aquatic systems with a focus on hydrophobic chemicals anti their partitioning in sediment anti pore water. From 1994 to 1997, Dr. Huggett was the assistant administrator for research anti clevelopment for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Dr. Huggett earned his PhD at the Col- lege of William anti Mary (19771. NANCY E. LANGSTON is associate professor of environmental studies/ forest ecology anti management at the University of Wisconsin-Maclison. Dr. Langston earned an MPhil at Oxford (1986) and a PhD from the University of Washington (19941. Her research emphasis is on the historical and eco- logical processes that shape lanciscape change in western ecosystems. Recent projects inclucle analysis of forest change in fire-aciaptecI ecosystems anti restoration alternatives in ponclerosa pine forests. Her current projects exam- ine riparian change in the iniancI West focusing on the interplay between ranching, irrigation, anti wilcIlife refuge management anti analyses of the potential for aciaptive management. She serves on the BoarcI of Directors of the Forest History Society anti on the eclitorial boarcI for Environmental History. Her first book, Forest Dreams, Forest Nightmares: the Paradox of Ed Growth in the Inland West, won the Charles Weyerhaeuser Prize for best book in conservation history (1997), and her forthcoming book is Where Land and Water Meet: A Western Landscape Transformed. JEFFREY F. MOUNT is professor of geology at the University of Califor- nia, Davis. Dr. Mount's research emphasis is on the geomorphic response of lowlancI river systems to changes in lancI use anti lancI cover anti the links between hycirogeomorphology anti riverine ecology. Current projects in- clucle analysis of geomorphology of floocI plains, floocI-plain response to nonstructural floocI-management measures, clevelopment of new floocI-plain restoration methods, role of hycirologic anti seclimentologic residence time in riverine ecosystems, anti clevelopment of couplecI hycirogeomorphic anti ecosystem moclels for environmental monitoring.
