Effects of climate change and wildfire on stream temperatures and salmonid thermal habitat in a mountain river network

Publications Posted on: July 07, 2010
Mountain streams provide important habitats for many species, but their faunas are especially vulnerable to climate change because of ectothermic physiologies and movements that are constrained to linear networks that are easily fragmented.
