Investigating responses of riverine habitats and Pacific salmon to climate change

Principal Investigators:

Luis Francisco Madrinan

Pacific salmon play an important ecological role by interacting with other species in the rivers where they are born, in the ocean where they spend most of their life, and later again in the river where they return to breed. As a result of their very complex life history, salmonid species have been affected by human activities such as harvest, hydropower, hatcheries and habitat destruction. Climate controls fish metabolic rates, influences habitat use, and regulates behavioral responses to a variety of environmental stimuli. For this reason climate... more
