Priorities > Resilience

  • An indication of habitat resilience may be the watershed features of drainage area, maximum elevation, stream length, and flow.

  • Drainage area and maximum elevation directly relate to the amount of water collected.

  • Stream length figures in the number of trout populations that may be supported.

  • The relationship among streams in area, elevation, and length stays constant even as precipitation declines due to climate change, and that reasonably extends to flows.

  • Using the features cited, the 2 tables show 16 streams sorted by expected relative resilience, including 13 from the near-term priority list, plus 3 that have been part of the discussion.
