Can brook trout survive climate change in large rivers? If it rains.

We provide an assessment of thermal habitat vulnerability in the upper Shavers Fork sub-watershed, West Virginia, which currently supports a brook trout metapopulation. We quantified variability in observed (2001–2015) summer stream temperatures (TS) across 23 (9 tributary, 14 main-stem) reaches. We developed a mixed effects model (R2=0.93; RMSE=0.76oC) to predict mean daily TS from air […]
