Distribution, Status, and Land Use Characteristics of Subwatersheds within the Native Range of Brook Trout in the Eastern United States
We examined and summarized existing knowledge regarding the distribution and status of self- sustaining populations of brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis at the subwatershed scale cross their native range in the eastern USA. This region represents approximately 25% of the species’ entire native range and 70% of the U.S. portion of the native range. This assessment resulted in an updated and detailed range map of historical and current brook trout distribution in the study area.
