Big biology meets microclimatology: Defining thermal niches of ectotherms at landscape scales for conservation planning

Publications Posted on: January 30, 2017
Temperature profoundly affects ecology, a fact ever more evident as the ability to measure thermal environments increases and global changes alter these environments. The spatial structure of thermalscapes is especially relevant to the distribution and abundance of ectothermic organisms but the ability to describe biothermal relationships at extents and grains relevant to conservation planning has been limited by small or sparse datasets.

Mapping climate refugia to preserve cold-water biodiversity using crowd-sourced databases

Science Spotlights Posted on: September 20, 2016
Concerns about climate change effects on cold-water biodiversity sparked broad multi-agency collaborative efforts throughout the American West. U.S. Forest Service research teams led development of massive interagency databases that now enable precise mapping of critical habitats and species distributions in streams flowing through 101 National Forests.

Characterizing the thermal suitability of instream habitat for salmonids: A cautionary example from the Rocky Mountains

Publications Posted on: January 15, 2016
Understanding a species’ thermal niche is becoming increasingly important for management and conservation within the context of global climate change, yet there have been surprisingly few efforts to compare assessments of a species’ thermal niche across methods.

Stream temperature and thermal networks: A GIS and remote sensing approach to assess aquatic habitat

Documents and Media Posted on: November 06, 2015
This presentation describes a project estimating stream temperature at the drainage basin scale by relating stream temperature to physical landscape variables (e.g., elevation, shading, valley bottom confinement, etc.). Document Type: Presentations

Use of Thematic Mapper satellite imagery, hemispherical canopy photography, and digital stream lines to predict stream shading

Documents and Media Posted on: November 06, 2015
This presentation describes a project estimating incident solar radiation at the stream surface, at the landscape scale, to help understand observed differences in water temperature on the Middle Fork Boise River Watershed in Idaho. Document Type: Presentations
