Abstract

Changing climate conditions, along with land-use and other ecological changes, are affecting the health, vitality, and resilience of Chinook salmon populations in watersheds throughout Puget Sound. Restoration and protection projects are designed to address the most critical factors affecting salmon populations. However, with climate change, these factors may change: the medium- and long-term success of the projects and expected benefits to salmon may be compromised and/or current investments may not achieve expected results.

Abstract

This document represents an initial effort to identify adaptation actions for river and stream habitats in southern California based on stakeholder input and existing information. Specifically, the information presented below comprises stakeholder input during a two-day adaptation workshop, peer-review comments and revisions, and relevant examples from the literature or other similar efforts. The aim of this document is to expand understanding of possible adaptation actions for southern California river and stream habitats in response to climate change.
