Identification of multiple genetically distinct populations of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in a small coastal watershed

Management and restoration planning for Pacific salmon is often characterized by efforts at broad multi-basin scales. However, finer-scale genetic and phenotypic variability may be present within individual basins and can be overlooked in such efforts, even though it may be a critical component for long-term viability. Here, we investigate Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) ...

The effect of dams on the larval abundance and composition of four carp species in key river systems in China

The four species of carp present in China (grass carp, black carp, silver carp and bighead carp) are all commercially important freshwater fish species. However, the construction of large-scale hydraulic projects, such as dams, along with other anthropogenic changes to river systems has resulted in the rapid decline in abundance of all four carp species. Indeed, the effect of dams ...

Plastic life-history variation along the course of a steep mountainous river in male Cottus hangiongensis (Pisces: Cottidae)

To elucidate the causes of clinal life-history variation in male freshwater amphidromous Cottus hangiongensis found along the river courses, we examined the genetic composition of upstream, midstream, and downstream groups using microsatellite DNA markers and different growth patterns among juvenile individuals before and after they ascended a small, steep mountainous river in ...
