The Idiosyncrasies of Streams: Local Variability Mitigates Vulnerability of Trout to Changing Conditions
Andrea Watts

The scientists found that local variability in stream habitat, such as water depth and instream cover, play a greater role in reducing the effects of timber harvest and climate change on trout than previously realized. Instream cover and shade improve trout survival by providing a place to hide from predators.

Trask River Contextual Analysis

This document presents brief portraits of various aspects of the Trask River study area. For each portrait, there is more information that can be derived from it however, in an effort to at least provide an initial look at the watershed the narrative was kept brief. For example, the section on geomorphology is evolving with the linkage of the terrain map with the channel gradient map to help us predict where we would expect to find more sediment accumulation. This contextual analysis is meant to help bound expected responses to management given the physical and biological template of the watershed. In the next installment I will look in more detail at the small catchments and how they vary. Some of the salient features of the physical and biological Trask Study landscape are summarized below with the more detailed sections following.
