A critical review of adaptive genetic variation in Atlantic salmon: implications for conservation
Here we critically review the scale and extent of adaptive genetic variation in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.), an important model system in evolutionary and conservation biology that providesExpand

Asymmetric gene flow and the evolutionary maintenance of genetic diversity in small, peripheral Atlantic salmon populations
Small populations may be expected to harbour less genetic variation than large populations, but the relation between census size (N), effective population size (Ne), and genetic diversity is not wellExpand

Mitochondrial DNA variation in Pleistocene and modern Atlantic salmon from the Iberian glacial refugium
Current understanding of the postglacial colonization of Nearctic and Palearctic species relies heavily on inferences drawn from the phylogeographic analysis of contemporary generic variants. ModernExpand

Differential invasion success of salmonids in southern Chile: patterns and hypotheses
Abstract Biological invasions create complex ecological and societal issues worldwide. Most of the knowledge about invasions comes only from successful invaders, but less is known about whichExpand

Does the parasitic freshwater pearl mussel M. margaritifera harm its host?
Many parasites have strong negative impacts on their hosts, but the effects of single-host, non-trophically transmitted parasites can be subtle and are not well understood. We examined theExpand

Microsatellite standardization and evaluation of genotyping error in a large multi-partner research programme for conservation of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
Microsatellite genotyping is a common DNA characterization technique in population, ecological and evolutionary genetics research. Since different alleles are sized relative to internalExpand

Mussels flexing their muscles: a new method for quantifying bivalve behaviour
We employed a novel technique to quantify how blue mussels Mytilus edulis react to predation risk in their environment by quantifying mussel gape using a Hall sensor attached to one shell valveExpand

Maladaptation and phenotypic mismatch in hatchery-reared Atlantic salmon Salmo salar released in the wild.
Changes in body shape, fluctuating asymmetry (FA) and crypsis were compared among Atlantic salmon Salmo salar fry kept as controls in captivity and those released and subsequently recaptured in theExpand

Effect of anthropogenic feeding regimes on activity rhythms of laboratory mussels exposed to natural light
Anthropogenic disturbance may affect animal behaviour and should generally be minimised. We examined how anthropogenic disturbance (24 h food deprivation) affected circadian rhythms in laboratoryExpand

Rare and fleeting: an example of interspecific recombination in animal mitochondrial DNA
Recombination is thought to occur only rarely in animal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). However, detection of mtDNA recombination requires that cells become heteroplasmic through mutation, intramolecularExpand
