Probabilistic measures of climate change vulnerability and adaptation action benefits for eastern brook trout
Our new paper, published in Global Change Biology, provides probabilistic measures of climate change vulnerability and adaptation action benefits for brook trout, a cold‐water salmonid of conservation concern in the eastern United States. The predictions from our modeling work can be explored on the Trout Unlimited ArcGIS server here. The model output can be integrated into other online maps using this service address. A special thanks to Trout Unlimited for hosting these model predictions!
Congratulations to Shannon - the 2018 recipient of The J. Brian Horton Award. The Horton Award recognizes outstanding achievement and service to the graduate community by a student in the Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Ecology at Penn State. Well Done!!
The Wagner Lab spent a day at Gray's Woods Elementary School teaching kids about the importance of taking care of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, clean streams and rivers, and all the critters that depend on clean water for survival (including us humans!). Kids loved seeing the creepy, crawly aquatic invertebrates and learning about Brook Trout, Pennsylvania's state fish.
