Effects of Thermal Tolerance Limits on the Distribution and Restoration of Southwest Native Salmonids

August 2008 - August 2011


Participating Agencies

  • Science Support Partnership

(1) Obtain thermal tolerance limits and performance within a critical life history stage for RGCT and Apache trout; (2) compare these laboratory-derived thermal tolerance limits to temperatures obtained from streams containing self-sustaining populations and to those targeted for restoration using geospatial imagery (GIS).
