New research paper accepted at CJFAS

On August, a manuscript written by Dr. Jason Hwan and coauthored by myself and colleagues in France and the US was accepted at Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences (check it online here). In this research, I participated in the modelling of coho salmon and steelhead trout survival by analysing a 4-year capture-recapture dataset under a multievent framework that corrected existing heterogeneity on recapture probability, thus yielding robust and more reliable demographic quantities about the study populations. We found that summer survival of salmonids found in intermittent streams can be surprisingly high, but decreases significantly towards the end of the season, especially in drier years.
