Predicting Species at Risk: Insight gained from species co-occurrences & Evaluating adaptive phenotypic variation to mitigate threats to endangered cyprinids
Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) provided $96,850.00 in funding through the partnership fund to the University of Toronto for two projects. The first project will determine how biotic factors (such as co-occurring taxa) can be incorporated within species distribution models for federally listed fish species at risk in order to predict suitable areas for Species at Risk (SAR) reintroductions through translocations or stocking. The second project will help to mitigate threats to SAR cyprinids by determining critical thermal stress thresholds and whether these thresholds vary within and across imperiled populations.
