The January 2022 Idaho EPSCoR Newsletter features numerous articles highlighting GEM3 research on redband trout. Included are features on:

  • U of I postdoctoral researcher William Wang's work integrating geospatial techniques with stream temperature modeling to understand redband trout,
  • U of I masters student Carlie Sharpes research to understand the combined effects of hypoxic and thermal stress on redband trout,
  • ISU graduate Anna Ringelman's work with bioenergetic foraging models,
  • ISU masters student Ben Kline's research on epigenetic variation of redband trout, and
  • ISU doctoral candidate Tyler Breech work to describe the major axes of phenotypic and genetic diversity in Oncorhynchus mykiss, including many of the native trout species from western North America.
