Evaluating the reproductive success of Arkansas River shiner by evaluating early life history dispersal and survival at a landscape scale
August 2011 - May 2013
- Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation
The objectives are to 1.) assess the effects and interactions of environmental factors on egg buoyancy and early life-history stage survival through laboratory and field experiments; and 2.) use these data to build a predictive model at the landscape and inchannel scales to predict the probability of successful spawning.
