Abstract

Effects of climate change over the next century will have important consequences for freshwater fish distributions and abundance. A fish’s body temperature closely mirrors that of its environment. Consequently, the physiology, ontogeny, and life histories of freshwater fishes are regulated by the timing and magnitude of streamflow and temperature regimes, which are directly influenced by climatic conditions.
