Fish Out of Water? Salmon and Rapid Environmental Change

People are captivated by Pacific salmon—and concerned about how they and their habitats will respond to complex environment change. In a companion talk to the E.O. Wilson event immediately preceding  Jennifer Griffiths, a Ph.D. candidate in the UW’s School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, uses the rich heritage of freshwater salmon research in Alaska and the Northwest to examine the impacts of increasing temperatures on different species: Why does temperature matter to Pacific salmon? And under what circumstances will changes in temperature become a critical issue? Presented by Engage: The Science Speaker Series as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the University of Washington, Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
