Purpose

Anticipating and mitigating the effects of climate change is a fundamental challenge for natural resource conservation. In this study, we focus on the research needs identified by Trout Unlimited personnel for coldwater stream conservation in the context of climate change. Native brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) were identified as a high priority for research due to their natural and cultural importance and dependence on coldwater habitats which are threatened by climate change.
