Hydrology, Ecology, and Fishes of the Klamath River Basin

Hydrology, Ecology, and Fishes of the Klamath River Basin evaluates new scientific information that has become available since the National Research Council (NRC) issued its 2004 report on Endangered and Threatened Fishes in the Klamath River Basin. The new information includes two new reports on (1) the hydrology of the Klamath Basin and (2) habitat needs for anadromous fish in the Klamath River, including coho salmon. The NRC committee also identifies additional information needed to better understand the basin ecosystem, considering water quality as well as flow volumes and seasonal flow patterns.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 28, 2007 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
