Evaluating the effects of drought and anthropogenic influences on the growth of stream fishes on the Edwards Plateau

Duration

January 2014 - August 2016

Narrative

Both drought and landscape-level anthropogenic alterations, such as alterations of stream channel morphology and flow regime, have the potential to affect fish growth. Results from this study will provide biologists with a better understanding of how drought coupled with anthropogenic alterations effects the overall growth rate of stream fishes and will help improve decisions made for the management and conservation of stream fishes found within similar river systems.
