Landscape characteristics and coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) distributions: explaining abundance versus occupancy
Abstract:Distribution of fishes, both occupancy and abundance, is often correlated with landscape-scale characteristics (e.g., geology, climate, and human disturbance). Understanding these relationships is essential for effective conservation of depressed populations. We used landscape characteristics to explain the distribution of coho salmon (
