  abstract =     "This work presents a novel methodology, genetic
                 programming (GP), for developing environmental response
                 functions for Formosan Landlocked Salmon (Oncorhynchus
                 masou formosanus); these functions are then applied to
                 evaluate the impacts of climate changes. Average daily
                 temperature and maximal flows between two sampling
                 periods were adopted as principal factors for
                 categorizing environmental conditions. The GP
                 successfully identified the response functions for
                 various environmental categories. The response
                 functions were further applied to assess the impact of
                 climate change. Fourteen future possible climate
                 scenarios were derived based on the equilibrium and
                 transition experiments by GCMs. Impact assessment
                 results indicated that climate change may significantly
                 influence populations of Formosan Landlocked Salmon due
                 to more frequent higher temperatures. Adaptation
                 strategies are required to mitigate the impact of
                 global climate change as current conservation measures
                 for Formosan Landlocked Salmon habitat only reduce
                 local human-induced effects. In the situation of
                 complicated relationships between fish population and
                 environmental conditions, GP provides a useful tool to
                 obtain some information from the limited data.",
