Many written accounts by some of the first European settlers describe the immense abundance of striped bass, along with alewives, traveling and spawning up most rivers in the coastal Northeast.
The striped bass is a typical member of the Moronidae family in shape, having a streamlined, silvery body marked with longitudinal dark stripes running from behind the gills to the base of the tail. The largest specimen recorded was 124 pounds (56 kg), netted in 1896.
But, it is a breathtakingly significant work that demonstrates through those decades of research that when stereotype and identity threats are removed, racial as well as gender differences in test scores simply disappear.
He also demonstrates that those threats are related to higher incidences of elevated blood pressure in black Americans, physiological conditions that do not characterize black Africans and that are almost certainly caused by the tensions characteristic of black-white relations in the U. I know most people lead very busy lives but I fervently hope readers of this post find the time to examine Steele’s groundbreaking research.
Although Steele is currently the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost of the University of California -- Berkeley, when he was actively engaged in full-time research his work focused almost entirely on self-image, self-affirmation, stereotype threat, and identity threat, all of which turn out to be closely related.
Since the book, Whistling Vivaldi, is basically a summary of nearly four decades of empirical research by Steele and many colleagues in the U. and Europe, I can’t possibly do it justice in a scant paragraph or two in this post.
They are anadromous fish that migrate between fresh and salt water. Striped bass have been introduced to the Pacific Coast of North America and into many of the large reservoir impoundments across the United States by state game and fish commissions for the purposes of recreational fishing and as a predator to control populations of gizzard shad.
In Canada, the province of Quebec designated the striped bass population of the Saint Lawrence as extirpated in 1996.
Analysis of available data implicated overfishing and dredging in the disappearance. .mw-parser-output .tmulti .thumbinner.mw-parser-output .tmulti mw-parser-output .tmulti .tsingle.mw-parser-output .tmulti .theader.mw-parser-output .tmulti .thumbcaption.mw-parser-output .tmulti .text-align-left.mw-parser-output .tmulti .text-align-right.mw-parser-output .tmulti [email protected] all and (max-width:720px) Striped bass spawn in fresh water, and although they have been successfully adapted to freshwater habitat, they naturally spend their adult lives in saltwater (i.e., they are anadromous).
These include: Elephant Butte Lake in New Mexico; Lake Ouachita, Lake Norman in North Carolina; Lake Norfork, Beaver Lake and Lake Hamilton in Arkansas; Lake Thunderbird in Illinois; Lake Pleasant, and Lake Havasu in Arizona; Lake Powell along the Arizona/Utah border; Castaic Lake, Pyramid Lake, Silverwood Lake, Diamond Valley Lake, and San Francisco Bay-Delta in California; Lewis Smith Lake in Alabama; Lake Cumberland in Kentucky; Lake George in Florida; Lake Murray in South Carolina; Lake Lanier in Georgia; Watts Bar Lake, in Tennessee; Lake Mead, Nevada; Lake Texoma in Oklahoma, Lake Tawakoni, Lake Whitney, Possum Kingdom Lake, and Lake Buchanan in Texas; Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania; Lake Wallenpaupack in Northeastern Pennsylvania; Umpqua River in Oregon and in Virginia's Smith Mountain Lake The spawning success of striped bass has been studied in the San Francisco Bay-Delta water system, with a finding that high total dissolved solids (TDS) reduce spawning.
At levels as low as 200 mg/l TDS, an observable diminution of spawning productivity occurs.
