Abstract

The predicted increase in mean annual air temperature of 3.2-4.8oC is not expected to extirpate fish taxa in the basin. Habitat warming in streams and lakes will likely shrink extant populations of salmonines and coregonines through reductions in preferred thermal habitat and allow range extensions of cyprinids, esocids, centrarchids, and ictalurids. Competition for optimal thermal space within thermal niches will increase, resulting in changes in community composition. Relatively rapid changes in water level would adversely affect the structure of wetlands and littoral areas, reducing their efficacy as spawning and nursery areas. Changes in fisheries yields of preferred species are expected.-from Authors
