Masters ThesisEnvironmental stochasticity and the reliability of redd count data: a simulation study of redd construction, redd loss, and survey frequency in a small coastal stream in northern CaliforniaJones, Edward C.Redd counts – total number of distinct redds observed during a spawning season - are often used as an indicator of the abundance of salmonids spawning in streams and have recently been adopted for statewide assessment of status and trends in abundance . . .
Masters ThesisComparison of benthic invertebrate community structure and diet composition of steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in Dry Creek, CaliforniaDockham, Andrea SueMorphological changes in the Dry Creek (Sonoma County, California) associated with Warm Spring Dam, have reduced habitat availability for rearing fish, and potentially altered the community structure of benthic invertebrates that form the prey-base fo . . .
PosterEffect of Size at Release on Tendency of Trinity River Hatchery Steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to Return as Half-PoundersManishin, KaitlynI used scale analysis to estimate the half-pounder frequency among wild and hatchery steelhead from the Trinity River 2011 and 2012 smolt years and compare those estimates to the half-pounder frequency from 1993 until 2008. Hatchery steelhead from 201 . . .
