What happened to the Amistad Gambusia? Originally endemic to the Goodenough Spring, a spring located near the Rio Grande on the border between Mexico and Texas. Endemic: unique to a defined place or region Construction began on the Amistad Dam in 1965 near the confluence of the Rio Grande and Devils River. Primary functions of the dam are to provide flood control and water conservation. It also provides power and recreational opportunities.

What happened to the Amistad Gambusia? Amistad dam gates were closed in 1968, and the water level started rising toward Goodenough Spring. George Henderson of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department notified Alex E. Peden of a possibly new species of Gambusia in Goodenough Spring. Van Conner and Monta Zengerle of Texas A&M University collected several hundred specimens on April 11, 1968. On July 12, 1968, reservoir water levels reached the spring. Another 30-40 Amistad Gambusia were collected from the flooded spring on August 3, 1968.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
