    currently planned, with options for fish and algae). These data will be correlated to the O/E values across the site network to help identify how stream health is affected by the degree of streamflow alteration in the Atlantic Highlands. For example, results from a flow-ecology study in the Rocky Mountains of the U.S. indicated that flow. 1. Introduction. Climate change is a pervasive and growing global threat to biodiversity and ecosystems (Díaz et al., ).Climate change affects individual species and the way they interact with other organisms and their habitats, which alters the structure and function of ecosystems and the goods and services that natural systems provide to society (Díaz et al., .

    assessed streamflow alteration at streamflow monitoring sites throughout the conterminous US. The mag-nitudes of mean annual (–) minimum and maximum streamflows were found to have been altered in 86% of assessed streams. The occurrence, type, and severity of streamflow alteration differed markedly between arid and wet climates.   This review attempts to assess, as quantitatively as possible, the habitat requirements in fresh water of three common and widespread European salmonid species. Namely: the trout (Salmo trutta L.), the salmon (S. salar L.) and the grayling (Thymallus thymallus L.). Requirements are considered for spawning, incubation and emergence, juveniles and Cited by:

Water uses can cause short and long-term effects on beaver habitat by changing seasonal flow regimes and stream morphology, and by causing loss or degradation of riparian vegetation. Intense grazing by wild and domestic ungulates in a riparian zone is also a primary cause of beaver habitat degradation.

Alteration of the quantity and timing of river or stream flow can significantly affect fisheries resources. The American Fisheries Society (AFS) is alarmed at the loss of natural streams in North America, and greatly concerned with management of fisheries in streams that have been altered.

• Dams have increased stream fragments by % and significantly altered flows. • Dam influences on streams and fishes differ by ecoregion and stream size. • Dams have affected fishes as much or more than other anthropogenic stressors. • Diverse dam metrics are needed to aid in dam policy and management by: Assessment of effects of altered stream flow characteristics on fish and wildlife: performed for the Western Energy and Land Use Team, Office of Biological Services, Fish and Wildlife Service, Dept.

Bean, Barnett A. Rattner, in Health Care and Environmental Contamination, Introduction. Concerns over anthropogenic effects on the environment, particularly on wildlife species abundance and diversity, have grown since the publication of Rachel Carson's “Silent Spring” in (Carson, ).Much of the focus of “Silent Spring” was on the consequences.

ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS ASSESSMENT Overview Water and Aquatic Wildlife/Habitat Increased fish mortality caused by expanded angling pressures, poaching and management actions. Altered streamflow, particularly the timing and intensity of. By reducing numbers of the schooling species, the access to defended food for individuals from the school could be greatly reduced.

This positive frequency dependence in foraging ability with local population size is a form of an Allee effect. Overfishing is most likely to reduce intermediate- to large-sized.

This study attempted to analyze flow duration in a basin using a method to estimate environmental flow developed by the International Water Management Institute, and simulate the effects of runoff characteristics unique to a river and flow variability due to basin developments on aquatic ecosystems.
