Assessing sensitivity of salmon species to river modifications and climate change

Principal Investigators:

Christine Petersen

The salmonids are particularly predisposed to local adaptation to habitat and climate conditions due to their trait of returning to the natal stream for adult-stage reproduction. With ranges from California to Alaska, salmon species in the NE Pacific encompass a fairly diverse set of strategies for meeting the variety of challenges to survival posed during the stream and ocean phases of life history. Both climate and anthropogenic changes to riverine and ocean habitat are likely to influence this risk landscape. Optimal growth rates, timing of emergence,... more
