Yoichiro Kanno to present Division of Biology Seminar

Submitted by Division of Biology

Yoichiro Kanno, associate professor in the department of fish, wildlife, and conservation biology at Colorado State University, will present "Population Dynamics of Stream Salmonids and Their Implications on Conservation in a Changing World" as part of the Division of Biology Seminar Series at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, in 221 Ackert Hall.

Animal populations are spatially and temporally structured and understanding drivers of these dynamics is important for their conservation and management. Based on mark-recapture and long-term count data of resident and sea-run salmonids in the U.S. and Japan, Kanno shows that spatial heterogeneity is a common pattern in the riverscape, and animal movement is a key demographic process that sustains spatially-structured populations. Salmonid populations are also highly variable over time, responding to inter-annual and seasonal variation in climate. Kanno will discuss challenges and opportunities of conserving cold-water fishes under anthropogenic threats such as climate change and habitat degradation and fragmentation.
