Dans les lacs, la truite s’adapte aux changements climatiques, selon une étude
(French-language article) « La truite réagit rapidement aux changements de la température de l'eau. Aussitôt que la température devient trop élevée, le poisson quitte les eaux peu profondes, et biologiquement plus productives pour s'aventurer dans les parties les plus profondes du lac où la nourriture se fait plus rare, explique Matthew Guzzo. Et lorsqu'un prédateur de cette envergure est contraint de changer de régime, cela a des conséquences non seulement sur lui, mais sur toute la chaîne alimentaire. »

Experimental Lakes Area scientists take to Twitter to answer questions from public
"For the month of July, people can tweet at the IISD-ELA Twitter account with any questions they may have for Experimental Lakes Area scientists with the hashtag #ELA140, whether it’s about climate change, different pollutants, invasive species, or what exactly happens at the ELA, a natural laboratory made up of 58 small lakes and their watersheds near Vermilion Bay. The catch, of course, is the researchers have to respond in 140 characters or less."
