A revised model for lipid‐normalizing δ13C values from aquatic organisms, with implications for isotope mixing models
TLDR
A revised lipid-normalization model is described that should be applicable to a wide range of marine and freshwater fish species in studies applying stable isotope analyses to ecological management issues and strongly advise against applying these kinds of lipid- normalization models to aquatic invertebrate data.
Implications of climate change for the fishes of the British Isles.
TLDR
Major changes in fish communities can be expected over the next 50 years with a concomitant need to adapt management strategies accordingly, regardless of the success or failure of programmes aimed at curbing climate change.
Phenotype-environment correlations in a putative whitefish adaptive radiation.
TLDR
It is suggested that the ecological processes acting in the trimorphic lakes are similar to each other, and are driving the adaptive evolution of whitefish morphs, possibly leading to the formation of new species.
Rapid sympatric ecological differentiation of crater lake cichlid fishes within historic times
TLDR
This study provides empirical evidence of eco-morphological differentiation occurring very quickly after the colonization of a new and vacant habitat, and suggests that this population of Midas cichlid fishes may be in a very early stage of speciation (incipient species), promoted by disruptive selection and ecological diversification.
Tracing early stages of species differentiation: Ecological, morphological and genetic divergence of Galápagos sea lion populations
TLDR
This study challenges the view that geographical barriers are strictly needed for the build-up of genetic divergence and suggests a key role of intra- as well as inter-specific niche segregation in the evolution of genetic structure among populations of a highly mobile species under conditions of free movement.
Rapid sympatric ecological differentiation of crater lake cichlid fishes within historic times
TLDR
This study provides empirical evidence of eco-morphological differentiation occurring very quickly after the colonization of a new and vacant habitat, and suggests that this population of Midas cichlid fishes may be in a very early stage of speciation (incipient species), promoted by disruptive selection and ecological diversification.
Parasite diversity, patterns of MHC II variation and olfactory based mate choice in diverging three-spined stickleback ecotypes
TLDR
The results suggest the action of homogenizing selection within habitat type and diverging selection between habitat types, and the role of olfactory cues in maintaining reproductive isolation between diverging fish ecotypes, is demonstrated.
Stable isotope analyses provide new insights into ecological plasticity in a mixohaline population of European eel
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the ecology of eels found along a short salinity gradient can be extremely plastic and that stable isotope analysis has considerable utility in demonstrating intra-population variation in diadromous fishes.
Natural mortality, growth parameters, and environmental temperature in fishes revisited.
TLDR
Using an updated database and techniques that avoid some of the earlier analytical problems, Pauly's conclusion that mortality is correlated with growth and temperature is confirmed and a path model supports the role of ecological effects on mortality.
