Summary

This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction

  • Lake Tahoe: a history of change attributed to cultural eutrophication, thermal changes from climate, and the introduction of nonnative species

  • The effects of an altered thermal regime to Tahoe invasive species

  • The effect of climate change to water transparency in western montane lakes and the impact on vulnerability to invasion

  • Complications for natural resource managers: understanding and mitigating the response of nonnative aquatic species to climate change
