Wyoming Basin Rapid Ecoregional Assessment: Aquatic Ecosystems


June 2012 - September 2014


This study is a component of the USGS Fort Collins Science Center led Rapid Ecoregional Assessment for the Wyoming Basin and will focus on understanding the key attributes of aquatic ecosystems and specific fish species and how disturbance will impact them. Specific objectives that are being addressed include:
1. Identify key ecological attributes of aquatic conservation elements
2. Identify primary change agents affecting aquatic conservation elements
3. Assess how change agents (fire, development, invasive species, and climate change) will affect the distribution and key ecological attributes of aquatic conservation elements
