Influences of temperature and environmental variables on the distribution of bull trout within streams at the southern margin of its range

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
The bull trout Salvelinus confluentus is believed to be among the most thermally sensitive species in coldwater habitats in western North America. We conducted a comprehensive field assessment of thermal habitat associations throughout the southern margin of the species' range. We developed models of thermal habitat associations using two data sets representing a geographically diverse range of sites and sampling methods.
