Temperature, Phenology, and Embryo Survival in Western Alaska Sockeye Salmon Populations: The Potential for Adaptation to a Warming World?
The overarching goal of the project is to understand how temperature might influence population-specific patterns of embryo incubation, timing of hatching and fry emergence, and sockeye salmon embryo survival. By combining analyses of data from two large lake systems in the Kvichak watershed, laboratory rearing experiments to elucidate functional relationships, and simulation modeling, this project quantifies biological responses to changing freshwater temperature in an important species of Western Alaska.
