Significance of Lewis and Clark Lake to the American History Working

Thesis:Lewis and Clark Lake holds numerous types of fish that display different characteristics and therefore the lake forms a vital part of the American History.

This article explores the topic of percid fishes which are freshwater derivatives of marine perciform. The fishes have undergone tremendous radiation and hence they comprise of 151 species available in North America. Nelson explores some of the reasons as to why it is essential to study the reproductive habits exhibited by organisms. In addition, Nelson argues that Sauger reproduction as well as its early life help in the determination of all the factors that affect year-class strength in Lewis and Clark Lake found on Dakota-Nebraska border.

Analysis/ Critique:

Nelson’s article will be helpful in the study because it explains the history of the fishes found in Lewis and Clark Lake. The lake forms some part of the American history and therefore it enables us to understand how some fisheries or rather marine perciform evolved into 151 species. Therefore, I will be able to use the article in explaining the formation of some of the species of fish in America. Such special will help in argument about American history.

Philip Swedberg holds a PhD in Family medicine as well as Internal medicine from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences.On the other hand, Walburg is a profession pet sitter.

Summary:

Swedberg’s article seeks to explain the ancient life of freshwater drum and Aplodinotus grunniens in order to determine some factors that influence year-class strength of Missouri River reservoir. In addition, the article gives an insight on fish spawning which occurred at a water temperature of 18 C. in addition, the author explains the different types of fish reared in Lewis and Clark Lake, Missouri River. As a result, such fish make a great contribution to the American history about the lake.

Analysis/ Critique:

This article is of great benefit to my study because I will be able to use the information in defining American history. Moreover, the information is appropriate for the study or rather research because the author analyses some species of fish that are available in the Lewis and Clark Lake. The article will also assist me in analyzing the environment as well as the contribution of the lake to the American history. All the information in the article is important in defining or rather describing the topic and its significance to the big picture of American history.

Author’s Credentials:

Walburg holds a degree in physical education from the College of Belmont in the year 1979.

Summary:

In this article, Walburg analyses some of the factors that affect or rather influence the fluctuation in sauger’s strength. In addition, the author explores and explains the American fisheries transactions. The article include some information about the sampling of walleye which is also known as sander vitreus and morone chrysops also known as white bass. The author also discusses all the three stages of onto genetics from three main reservoirs.

Analysis/ Critique:

Walburg’s article is very important and useful in my study because it will help in the analysis and description of the entire topic in depth. In addition, the article will be beneficial in my research because it will enable me to have a firm base for my arguments about the topic and how it contributes to the greater picture of the American history. For instance, the article highlights all the factors that affected the transactions concerning American fisheries.

Author’s Name:  TS McComishAuthor’s Credentials:?· McComish holds several bachelor’s degrees in aquatic ecology, fisheries, exotic species and limnology from Ball State University and a PhD from Purdue University.

Summary:

This article focuses on food habits of smallmouth and bigmouth buffalo in Lewis and Clark Lake as well as Missouri River. In addition, the author explains some basic facts about American fisheries. In the article McComish also focuses on aquatic ecology and therefore he covers the aquatic life of all kinds of fish living in Lewis and Clark Lake. The author actually analyses all the aquatic creatures including various types of fish. He majorly discusses the feeding habits of the creatures.

Analysis/ Critique:

McComish article is very beneficial in the study and research because it contributes a lot about the feeding habits of the fish in Lewis and Clark Lake.

Therefore, it will enable me to describe the manner in which the feeding habits of the creatures of the fish contribute to the broad American history. In addition, the article will help me in the discussion of specifically the smallmouth and bigmouth buffalo that form a major part of the American history.
