- Temporal variation in selection on body length and date of return in a wild population of coho salmon, Oncorhynchus kisutchMiyako Kodama
School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, 98105, USA
BMC Evol Biol 12:116. 2012..Specifically, we quantified individual reproductive success and examined selection on date of return and body length in a wild population at Big Beef Creek, Washington (USA)...
- Pacific salmon extinctions: quantifying lost and remaining diversityRichard G Gustafson
National Marine Fisheries Service, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, 2725 Montlake Boulevard East, Seattle, WA 98112 2097, USA
Conserv Biol 21:1009-20. 2007..It is also evident that persistence of existing, and evolution of future, diversity will depend on the ability of Pacific salmon to adapt to anthropogenically altered habitats...
- Estimates of natural selection in a salmon population in captive and natural environmentsMichael J Ford
Conservation Biology Division, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, 2725 Montlake Boulevard E Seattle, WA 98112, USA
Conserv Biol 22:783-94. 2008..Our results are a concrete example of how estimates of natural selection during captivity can be used to evaluate this common risk of captive breeding programs...
- Human-induced evolution caused by unnatural selection through harvest of wild animalsFred W Allendorf
Division of Biological Sciences, University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:9987-94. 2009....
- Phenotypic plasticity and population viability: the importance of environmental predictabilityThomas E Reed
School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98105, USA
Proc Biol Sci 277:3391-400. 2010..We suggest that demographic models (e.g. population viability analyses) would benefit from a more explicit consideration of how phenotypic plasticity influences population responses to environmental change...
- Clock polymorphism in Pacific salmon: evidence for variable selection along a latitudinal gradientKathleen G O'Malley
National Marine Fisheries Service, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, Conservation Biology Division, Seattle, WA 98112, USA
Proc Biol Sci 277:3703-14. 2010..Our findings suggest that OtsClock1b mediates seasonal adaptation and influences geographical variation in reproductive timing in some of these highly migratory species...
- Simulating fishery-induced evolution in chinook salmon: the role of gear, location, and genetic correlation among traitsWilliam H Eldridge
University of Washington, School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, Seattle, Washington 98105, USA
Ecol Appl 20:1936-48. 2010..The model presented here has potential for incorporating empirical data into fisheries forecasting and therefore provides a powerful means of integrating evolutionary considerations into harvest management...
