Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report

Abstract

Study objectives were (1) Identify coolwater habitats and associated fish species on Illinois’ wadeable streams; (2) Characterize thermal and flow regimes under current conditions and scenarios describing landcover and climate change; (3) Assess vulnerability (sensitivity and exposure) of thermal and flow regimes to landcover and climate changes for coolwater reaches; (4) Examine potential changes in fish species distributions and connectivity of their associated habitats; (5) provide annual and final reports that include an assessment of vulnerability to alterations in landcover and climate projected to occur in Illinois.
