Iowa stream fish species of greatest conservation need: using IAGAP products to refine prioritization and guide assessment

Project

Project goals and objectives:

  • Refine Iowa's prioritization of stream fish species of greatest conservation need (SGCN).
  • Test the potential of Iowa Aquatic Gap Analysis Program (IAGAP) models for predicting the occurrence of fish SGCN in wadeable Iowa streams.
  • Better understanding of the occurrence and distribution of high-priority fish SGCN in wadeable Iowa streams.

This project was completed by Clay L. Pierce and Michael C. Quist as Principal Investigators, Anthony R. Sindt as the student investigator, Gregory Gelwicks, and Thomas Wilton. To read more about this project, click here.
