New guest blog on little weirs and little fishes

Jeroen Tummers takes the baton from Jess Picken over on the WTT Blog with another update on current research from the young scientists themselves.

Jeroen was awarded his BSc and MSc at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands,and then decided to undertake a PhD at Durham University on river restoration ecology. In particular, his research focus is the effectiveness of a broad range of solutions aimed at restoring longitudinal connectivity in fragmented river systems for fishes. He is currently working on an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project, AMBER (Adaptive Management of Barriers in European Rivers).
