Framework for Estimating Salmon Survival as a Function of Habitat Condition

Aug 19, 1997

Abstract

The problem of evaluating the effects of land use actions on salmon survival is difficult because of the complexity of salmon biology and freshwater ecology. Most land use actions in the tributaries do not affect salmon survival directly. Land use actions affect habitat variables, which in turn affect salmon survival. Thus, the problem can be partitioned into: 1) effects of habitat variables on salmon survival, and 2) effects of land use actions on habitat variables. This report deals with the effects of habitat variables on salmon survival.
