Brook trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout are distributed throughout streams in Michigan and support valuable recreational fisheries. Streams are projected to become warmer in the future due to climate change, but the effects of warming on growth, reproduction, and survival of these trout species are largely unknown. Understanding and predicting climate change impacts is important for developing management strategies that sustain healthy, fishable trout populations. The goal of this project was to design a user-friendly, map-based decision-support tool that combines stream-specific information on resource availability (e.g., money, time, personnel), temperature patterns, and other biological conditions to assist...
Relatively few studies have examined the social aspects of climate change in the US. Of that research, most have studied perceptions and public understanding (Akerlof, Maibach, Fitzgerald, Cedeno, & Neuman, 2013; Leiserowitz et al., 2015; van der Linden, 2015). For example, some visitor studies on place-based climate change have focused on perceptions and knowledge (Brownlee, 2012; Crona, Wutich, Brewis, & Gartin, 2013; De Urioste-Stone, Scaccia, & Howe-Poteet, 2015). Studies that measure the perception, knowledge, and awareness of climate change issues using park managers is virtually non-existent especially in a state with non-obvious climate change indicators (Garfin et al., 2011; Swim & Fraser, 2014; Thompson...
