January 10 Brown Bag Seminar: Splittail Populations and Environmental Conditions – Mechanisms, Scale and Connectivity

Friday, January 10, 2014, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

CAL EPA building
Sierra Room, 2nd floor
1001 ‘I’ street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Melinda Baerwald, Nann Fangue and Ted Foin - UC Davis

A team of scientists from UC Davis will discuss its interdisciplinary research approach to understanding the physiological tolerance and preferences of two distinct Delta splittail populations. The research focused on juvenile and adult life stages and population genetics to understand physiological tolerance and preferences to variations in temperature and salinity. Interdisciplinary efforts such as this provide essential support to understanding conservation and landscape-scale restoration approaches that consider aquatic habitat linkages and refugia.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
