Research News with Kenai Watershed Forum
For my work with Kenai Watershed Forum I started keeping a blog to share a little bit about various projects I’m involved with. From water quality, to fish habitat, to education, it’s a fun mix.
Climate Change and Juvenile Salmon Habitat in the Kenai River Watershed
As the climate warms in Alaska, water temperatures will also warm. Warmer waters affect how juvenile salmon grow and live, but not all changes are made equal. Will wild salmon be able to handle the kinds of sweeping environmental changes that are coming in the next century?
How do wildfires affect juvenile salmon growth and diet?
Long after the smoke and flames are gone, wildfires continue to transform their ecosystems. I say wildfires have “their ecosystems,” because they are truly the most prominent force shaping the boreal landscape.
