Method for assessing the vulnerability of stream fish species to climate change based on habitat suitability models

This project presents a framework and a method for assessing the vulnerability of 38 fish species to climate change in France. The method is based on the development of habitat suitability models developed for current and future climate conditions. These models included spatially explicit variables related to current and future climatic data (scenario A1B) and environmental features (considered constant in time). The outputs of the model combined to dispersion capacity and uncertainty index (from expert judgments) allowed the construction of vulnerability indicators for 38 fish species. These results provided some guidelines for conservation recommendations in a context of climatic change.

This European project is a technical solution to harmonize energy and water through its mission, “making sustainable hydropower a reality”: Administrators of mountain areas daily face water use issues and have to take decisions in relation to them. But they lack reliable management tools tailored to mountain rivers, to rigorously evaluate the effects of water abstraction on environment and on society.

Since August 2009, an innovative system has been helping to treat wastewater from the water treatment plant at Saint-Just (5000 population equivalent) in the Hérault department (France). Called the ‘Zone Libellule’ (‘libellule’ is the French word for dragonfly, and an acronym for ‘LIberté Biologique Et de LUtte contre les poLluants Emergents’—Biological freedom and fight against emerging pollutants), it is made up of a series of wetlands containing over 7000 plants from 48 different species.
