G3 (Bethesda) 5:873-89. 2015..However, given the high degree of genetic correlation between these traits, they do not evolve in isolation, but rather as a suite of coordinated characters in a predictable manner. ..

- 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)...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...

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...
