    • Above the Dam: Salmon Colonization of New Habitat 

      Anderson, Joseph H. (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
      Anderson will discuss salmon colonization. He will define homing versus straying, and review the history of salmon colonization. He will describe a project to pass salmon above Landsburg Dam in Washington State. This study ...
    • Anadromy and the Life History of Salmonid Fishes: Nature, Nurture, and the Hand of Man 

      Quinn, Thomas P. (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-05-06)
      Quinn will present a life history of anadromous salmonid fishes. As a case study, he will discuss a model system, sockeye salmon, in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Scientists have been studying these fish, in this habitat, for decades ...
    • It's About Time! Natural and Unnatural Selection on Migration and Spawning in Pacific Salmon 

      Quinn, Tom (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Quinn will discuss how natural selection operates on the timing of migration and spawning by salmon. Temperature and flow are the primary physical factors in the evolution and ecology of timing. Salmon seem to be adapting ...
    • Juveline Salmon Utilization of Freshwater Tidal Ecosystems: an Essential Restoration Link? 

      Simenstad, Charles (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
      Simenstad will provide an overview of tidal freshwater ecosystems. These systems are complex and highly variable ecotones between fluvial and estuarine processes. They are particularly important in dynamic migration and ...
    • King of Fish: the Thousand-Year Run of Salmon 

      Montgomery, David (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
      Montgomery will review the evolution of the Pacific salmon. He will compare the current Pacific salmon decline to previous Atlantic salmon declines in England, Scotland, and New England. He will focus on harvest, hydro, ...
    • Linking Species to Ecosystems: Effects of Spawning Salmon on Aquatic Ecosystem Function 

      Holtgrieve, Gordon (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
      Over 20 years of research has highlighted how Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) returning from the ocean to natal lakes, rivers, and streams can have profound impacts on inland coastal ecosystems, and salmon are now an ...
    • Movement Patterns of Adult Sockeye Salmon in Lake Washington 

      Newell, Jenny (University of Washington Water Center, 2004-02-06)
      Newell will present the results of a study investigating the migration behavior of sockeye salmon in Lake Washington. In the study, fish were tagged at the Ballard Locks before they came into Lake Washington. Then they ...
    • Recolonization of the Cedar River, Washington, by Anadromous Fish: Build It and They Will Come 

      Kiffney, Peter (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Kiffney will discuss the dispersal, colonization patterns, and reproductive success of anadromous fish in native habitats. He will review the ecological effects of anadromous fish on populations, communities, and ecosystems. ...
    • Regulatory Effectiveness Monitoring for Developing Rural Areas: Assessing King County's Critical Areas Ordinance 

      Lucchetti, Gino (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-05-20)
      Lucchetti will present an overview of King County monitoring and regulation programs. Specifically, he will discuss plans to assess the effectiveness of the county's efforts. He will move on to: 1. Explain the Critical ...
    • The Underpinnings of Riparian Tree Production 

      Naiman, Robert; Latterell, Joshua (University of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Naiman and Latterell will discuss riparian biocomplexity. In particular, they will focus on the production dynamics of riparian trees, and possible drivers of tree production. They will conclude that effective management ...

    • Why do Salmon Stray? Tradeoffs Between Habitat and Homing 

      Cram, Jeremy (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
      Salmon are capable of precise homing at fine spatial scales, but some proportion of them stray to other areas within their natal system for spawning. Hatchery supplementation programs, such as the one being used in the ...
