New fish species named after Theodore Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Barack Obama
WHAT would you name a new species of fish after? What’s fishy enough to merit the honour? Biologists have named the new species belong of Etheostoma river dwellers after Theodore Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Barack Obama.
Prof Richard Mayden of the Saint Louis University’s Department of Biology and Dr Steven Layman of Geosyntec Consultants says in the Bulletin of the Alabama Museum of Natural History that these politicians did most to promote conservation and environmental protection.
The darters live in Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Kansas and Oklahoma.
Good idea for these fish to keep Gore on side. If the rivers dry out they can live in his eco-ark.
