Before the experimental burn: Scientists captured in-fire footage using cameras housed in specially designed units. In some cases, the cameras were completely destroyed—temperatures inside of fires can reach 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—but their memory cards with footage were recovered.
Different patterns and potential effects of future climate are evident in river discharge/temperature and fish migration at locations within the distribution of Coho Salmon in the Pacific Northwest. This variation contributes to a nuanced story of resilience and vulnerability of this migratory fish at broad spatial extents.
