Population-specific gene expression responses to hybridization between farm and wild Atlantic salmon
Because of intrinsic differences in their genetic architectures, wild populations invaded by domesticated individuals could experience population-specific consequences following introgression by genetic material of ...
Consequences of farmed-wild hybridization across divergent wild populations and multiple traits in salmon
Theory predicts that hybrid fitness should decrease as population divergence increases. This suggests that the effects of human-induced hybridization might be adequately predicted from the known divergence among parental ...
Hybridization effects on phenotypic plasticity: experimental compensatory growth in farmed-wild Atlantic salmon
Compensatory growth (CG) is a means by which organisms can increase their growth rate above their routine growth rate after a period of environmentally induced growth depression. Despite a focus on the implications of ...
Mixed evidence for reduced local adaptation in wild salmon resulting from interbreeding with escaped farmed salmon: complexities in hybrid fitness
Interbreeding between artificially-selected and wild organisms can have negative fitness consequences for the latter. In the Northwest Atlantic, farmed Atlantic salmon recurrently escape into the wild and enter rivers ...
Relative risks of inbreeding and outbreeding depression in the wild in endangered salmon
Conservation biologists routinely face the dilemma of keeping small, fragmented populations isolated, wherein inbreeding depression may ensue, or mixing such populations, which may exacerbate population declines via ...
Concurrent habitat and life history influences on effective/census population size ratios in stream-dwelling trout
Lower effective sizes (Ne) than census sizes (N) are routinely documented in natural populations, but knowledge of how multiple factors interact to lower N-e/N ratios is often limited. We show how combined habitat and ...
