200751400 - Effectiveness monitoring of in-stream habitat restoration using tools from population ecology

Sponsor: US Forest Service - Pacific Northwest Research Station

Short description: Habitat availability and diversity have been identified as limiting factors for rearing juvenile salmonids. We propose research to aid monitoring and evaluation (M&E) efforts used to scientifically validate the effectiveness of habitat restoration.

Location: Columbia Cascade province, Entiat subbasin

Budgets: FY08: $96,812 | FY09: $96,812

Primary species:
Anadromous: Chinook: Upper Columbia River Spring ESU (endangered)
Anadromous: Steelhead: Upper Columbia River ESU (endangered)


ObjectiveDescriptionSubbasin planStrategies
Effectiveness Monitoring of habitat restoration The Entiat Subbasin Plan includes placement of in-stream structures, large woody debris, an restoration of off-channel habitat to improve rearing conditions for juvenile anadromous salmonids. We are proposing a hypothesis-driven experimental approach to effectiveness monitoring where individual and population level performance is evaluated at multiple spatial scales. Entiat
