An environmental DNA-based survey for redside dace (Clinostomus elongatus) in Greater Toronto Area watersheds by Scott Reid( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Redside Dace (Clinostomus elongatus) is a small, colorful cyprinid found in the pools and slow-flowing sections of small Ontario streams. As a result of recent declines and threats to remaining populations, the species has been assessed by COSEWIC as Endangered in Canada. Ongoing inventory efforts are important to delineate areas of protected habitat and monitor trends in the distribution and abundance of Redside Dace populations. Between 2013 and 2015, we collected water samples (five 1-litre samples) from 149 sites in nine Greater Toronto Area watersheds (Bronte Creek, East Morrison Creek, Cold Creek, Kettleby Creek, Lynde Creek, Rainbow Creek, Sharon Creek, Spencer Creek, and Urfe Creek). The presence of Redside Dace at each site was assessed using environmental DNA (eDNA) methods based on species-specific quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) primers and probe. Only five of the sites sampled for Redside Dace yielded positive eDNA detections. Four positive detections were from Lynde Creek, and one positive detection was from East Morrison Creek. Single-pass backpack electrofishing surveys failed to collect Redside Dace from Lynde and East Morrison creeks. Study results support earlier assessments of declining population status for Redside Dace in these watersheds"--Abstract, p. iv

Regional Projections of Climate Change Effects on Thermal Habitat Space for Fishes in Stratified Ontario Lakes by Ontario( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To better understand the effects of projected changes in climate on suitable habitat space for fish in Ontario's inland lakes, models for ice break-up and freeze-up dates and for seasonal open water temperature profiles were joined to project future thermal regimes in a representative stratified lake for each of Ontario's secondary watersheds under future climates using four global climate models (GCMs) under alternate greenhouse gas emissions scenarios."--Summary
Mottled Duskywing (Erynnis martialis) in Ontario by Ontario( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Threats to the Mottled Duskywing are worsened by their high degree of habitat specificity combined with limited dispersal ability. Threats in Ontario are related to habitat and include: habitat fragmentation; habitat destruction; succession and canopy closure; deer browsing of larval food plants; pesticide use; and competition between larval food plants and aggressive invasive and/or exotic species. The species also has a complex relationship with fire which is not well understood. Frequent and intense fires may lead to direct mortality of individuals and to supressed larval food plant availability. However, the Mottled Duskywing is also dependent on fire (or other disturbances) to maintain suitable habitat conditions... The recovery goal for Mottled Duskywing is to ensure that existing threats to metapopulations and habitat are sufficiently mitigated to allow for the long-term persistence and expansion of the species into unoccupied suitable habitats." -- Executive Summary
Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for Inland Aquatic Ecosystems in the Great Lake Basin, Ontario by Ontario( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Climate change is impacting aquatic ecosystems in the Great Lakes Basin (GLB). Surface water temperatures of the Great Lakes, inland lakes and streams are on the rise, water levels are in decline, and the composition of plant and animal communities in wetlands are changing. The objectives of this study were to assess the vulnerability of different indicators; wetland vulnerability to drying, wetland bird species habitat, stream temperatures, stream thermal habitat, inland lake surface temperatures, and walleye biomass, to inform the development of a climate change adaptation strategy for aquatic ecosystems within the GLB of Ontario. Climate models forecast a 4 to 6 degrees C warming of mean annual air temperatures and regional changes in precipitation by the end of the century."--Summary
High Flows and Freshet Timing in Canada : Observed Trends by Ontario( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The frequency and timing of flood events strongly contributes to the fundamental nature of rivers. We examined trends in timing and spatial distribution of highflow events across Canada's Reference Hydrometric Basin Network, with a specific focus on spring freshet events... Earlier timing of freshets was readily apparent in the Atlantic provinces and Quebec. The trend for earlier freshets in British Columbia and Ontario was not yet statistically significant. Future warming will result in a major northward shift of the temperate zone and a new set of rivers that will be exposed to a shorter winter, shifts in the timing and frequency of highflow and lowflow events, and ice jamming. Depending on adaptive capacity, changes in stream flow may have potential impacts on aquatic organisms including shifts in distributions, asynchrony with important environmental cues, and changes in community interactions." -- Summary

Riverine Clubtail (Stylurus amnicola) in Ontario by Ontario( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Riverine Clubtail (Stylurus amnicola) is a dragonfly in the family Gomphidae, commonly referred to as the clubtails. The genus Stylurus, commonly called the hanging clubtails, differ from other clubtails in that they have relatively short hind legs and, when perched, typically "hang" vertically from vegetation with their abdomen pointing downwards. Most other clubtails typically perch horizontally on the ground or upon vegetation and have longer hind legs ... There are knowledge gaps in knowing and understanding the threats for this species. However, it is believed that the main threats to the survival of the Riverine Clubtail are habitat loss and degradation, pesticides, road mortality, invasive/introduced species and climate change."--Executive Summary

Small-mouthed Salamander (Ambystoma texanum) in Ontario by Ontario( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Small-mouthed Salamander reaches the northern limit of its range in Michigan, Ohio and on Pelee Island in Ontario. On Pelee Island it is known from only three wetlands, two of which are protected. The third site is on private land. Due to the relative isolation of the island, monitoring and surveillance programs are not frequent, no comprehensive population census data are available and threat assessment is limited. Nevertheless, the abilities of the species to withstand temporary droughts and avoid predators mean that this salamander could continue to thrive in Ontario if its habitat is maintained."--Executive Summary

Past, present, and future summer stream temperature in the Lake Simcoe watershed : Brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) habitat at risk by Ontario( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brook trout have been identified in the Lake Simcoe Protection Plan fisheries objectives and Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) climate change adaptation and mitigation strategy (LSRCA 2016) because of their sensitivity to warming temperatures and land-use change in the watershed. The fish community objectives specify the need to maintain existing brook trout populations and restore coldwater tributary habitat. As part of the tributary monitoring program implemented by LSRCA, water temperature loggers have been deployed throughout the watershed for the past 13 years. In this report, we use these water temperature data and a combination of climatic, geological, hydrological, and land cover variables to model current summer temperatures of tributaries throughout the Lake Simcoe watershed." -- Introduction
