The Tennessee Fish Collection housed in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee is the largest fish collection in Tennessee.  This collection represents over 40 years of work by Dr. David Etnier and continues to grow.  In terms of total species it ranks in the top 20 among North American Fish collections.  The collection houses  ~425,000 specimens from 206 families of fish.  The hyper-diverse fauna east of the Rocky Mountains is well represented in the collection, and it contains the best darter collection in North America based on numbers of species + specimens + lots of rare specimens. Data from the over ~37000 lots in the collection is available on a File Maker Pro database that is online searchable.  GPS information for all lots in this collection are in the process of being digitized.  This database should provide a powerful resource for both academic scientists and managers of Southeastern aquatic systems.

Ayersayers@utk.eduayers@utk.edu8659744942UTAll DayBox lunchPoster/DisplayScience studyGIS-based Watershed-scale River Mapping Yes
A GPS-based underwater videomapping system (UVMS) was used to map 45 river miles of the NPS Obed Wild and Scenic River (OBRI) river system, 81 miles of the NPS Big South Fork River and Recreation Area (BISO) river system, 16 miles of the NPS Great Smoky Mountains (GRSM) Abrams creek and 12 miles of the USFS Cherokee National Forest Citico creek.  The objective was to develop and utilize a system to generate landscape-scale aquatic habitat maps. The UVMS is canoe and kayak-mounted with georeferenced under and above water cameras, depth sounder, width sensors and underwater lasers.  GIS maps of substrate (modified Wentworth scale), embeddedness (EPA classification), width, depth and river characteristic (pool, riffle, run) were developed.  A technique to define optimum habitat locations for endangered fish and mussel species was implemented. Habitat suitability indexes algorithm for endangered fish species were also developed.  A GPS-based snorkel-cam video system was used to conduct endangered species population counts and detailed aquatic habitat maps. The system is also used to conduct georeferenced streambank mapping to estimate streambank erosion potential. River cross-section depths were performed at 150 foot intervals along a 16-mile river section.  GIS-based video tours of the above and below water river features will be demonstrated.

Watershed Management is once more on the rise. This time around, focus is on the urban landscape within the watershed unit. Headwaters and infrastructure interconnect to meet the collection function. Retention ponds, rain gardens and green space formally augment the storage function.  Capture, Reuse and Peak flow modulation through city ordinances and specifications augment the watershed discharge.  The ecological functions of the urban watershed are now realized as ecosystem services for recreation, public involvement, education and health of the community. The integration of the five basic functions sets up the management framework of the urban watershed.

The links between land use and water quality are generally well understood, and a wide range of green infrastructure technologies have been developed to accommodate traditional land use practices while protecting surface and groundwater supplies. Additionally, cost sharing programs are available through a variety of federal, state, and local government agencies. The combination of free technical assistance and grant monies can allow landowners to substantially reduce the water quality impacts of their operations with little cost to themselves. Yet inadequate institutional capacity at all levels of government inhibits the effectiveness and availability of this network of public assistance. Strategies for overcoming systemic resistance to technology transfer and more cost effective land use are proposed.
