“Was my pantsuit always this tight? I stand there, tugging at the fabric as the presentation room at the AFS Southern Division Meeting gradually fills up.

Taking a deep breath, I gather my composure, shoot a smile at the audience, and click to my opening slide—introducing a free database specializing in climate change impacts on inland fish.
