“The Eliason lab studies intraspecific variability and thermal tolerance in Pacific salmon. We are particularly interested in whether individual variation can enable salmon to survive and succeed in a changing world. Much of our research focuses on how climate change affects physiological performance across populations, age, body size, and sex in salmon. As an ecological physiologist, I use an integrative approach to examine questions across multiple levels of biological organization – from population, whole animal, organ, cellular to genome-level.”

Kim has been studying salmonids for almost 30 years. Based in Denmark, he has focused much of his research on brown trout and Atlantic salmon (though he has done a great deal of work on multiple eel species). His work integrates simple physiology, behavioral ecology and experimental studies. Kim has used telemetry as a key tool for his work, exploring the mechanisms that drive migration timing and success, and what that implies for the conservation and management of salmonid species in Denmark.
