Last August we were contemplating the Salton Sea (a manmade lake cum 
environmental disaster in S. California) first in connection with 
hypersaline polychaetes and then news about fish kills.    

For those interested in what's going to happen next there is a news item 
in the journal Science of 28 January, v287(5453):565 which reports on 
recent studies and plans of action (more than one  billion dollars may be 
necessary for restoration projects).   

Watch for an issue of Hydrobiologia publishing some of the biological 
studies later this year.
