Sensitivity of salmonid freshwater life history in Western US streams to future climate conditions.
Glob Chang Biol. 2013 May 2;
Authors: Beer WN, Anderson JJ
We projected effects of mid-21(st) century climate on the early-life growth of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and steelhead (O. mykiss) in western United States streams. Air temperature and snowpack trends projected from climate models and observed 20(th) century trends were used to predict future seasonal stream temperatures.
This event will take place at today, April 30, 2013 at 11:30AM. The faculty meeting for April 30, 2013 has been canceled.Read more
