"Long-term streamflow trends in Hawai‘i and implications for native stream fauna "
Warming climate will have fundamental impacts on freshwater which is a critical driver of tropical island ecosystems. Changing streamflow patterns will likely place additional pressure on native aquatic fauna that are already threatened by introduced species, degraded water quality, and stream diversion. This talk will focus on changes in streamflow regime in study streams across the five largest Hawaiian Islands, and the likely impact on habitat quality for native amphidromous (migratory) aquatic species. I will share results from running trend analyses, and multivariate analyses of species and environmental data, and discuss the implications for ridge to reef hydrological connectivity, and management of Hawai‘i’s native migratory freshwater fauna.
