New Approaches to Investigate Salmon-Habitat Relationships in Hydrologically Altered River Basins

April 26, 2019
1:30pm - 5:00pm

Session Coordinator: 
Eli Asarian, Riverbend Sciences

This session will feature a range of novel approaches for investigating salmon-habitat relationships in hydrologically altered river basins, including the Eel, Noyo, Trinity, Klamath, San Joaquin, Sacramento, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, and Lagunitas. Approaches include new genetic technologies, modeling software, metrics, and restoration techniques.
