Section 7. Abstract


University of Washington Support of the Plan for Analyzing and Testing Hypotheses (PATH). The overall goal is to assist the region in developing the ability to identify and assess key alternative hypotheses relating to salmon stock recovery and rebuilding in the Columbia River ecosystem. This project will provide tools and analyses for the scientific ecosystem-based evaluation of the impacts of specific fish and wildlife program actions. Specific objectives of this project are the development and use of statistical and mechanistic models of salmon life-cycle stages in various habitats: the mainstem (including passage of juveniles and adults), tributaries, estuary, and ocean. Both anthropogenic and environmental factors at each salmon life stage will be approached in a multi-faceted fashion involving qualitative descriptions, statistical data analysis, Bayesian maximum likelihood estimation techniques, and mechanistic models. Through these approaches, alternative hypotheses will be tested according to their mathematical rigor, the realism of their ecological mechanisms and their ability to fit available data and data patterns. An important outcome will be the development of tools to assist managers in assessing the strategic implications and validity of management decisions. The results will include reports describing hypotheses and their evaluations and models which will be available through the World Wide Web that managers can use to evaluate actions.
