Developing and Testing a Spatially-Explicit, Science-Based, Decision-Support Tool for Making Riverscape-Scale Management Decisions: How Dams and Culverts Affect a Threatened Native Stream Fish, the Neosho Madtom, and Select Tributary Fish Species


January 2012 - February 2018


The overarching goal of this project is to develop and test a spatially-explicit, decision-support tool for managing human impacts in stream and river networks. Specifically, we will quantify how dams affect threatened / endangered fish species and select tributary species. With this information, managers will be able to place their management actions in a synthetic, landscape-scale, multiple-stressor context.
