About This Project

Introduced rainbow trout can have profound effects on the chemical and biological characteristics of temperate streams including increased nutrients and species extirpation. How these non-native fish impact the unique cloud forest streams of Ecuador is unknown. We will examine the effect of trout on water chemistry, macroinvertebrate communities, and functional processes of several cloud forest streams to better inform management and evaluate and prevent possible degradation.
