Genetic estimates of contemporary effective population size: what can they tell us about the importance of genetic stochasticity for wild population persistence?
Genetic stochasticity due to small population size contributes to population extinction, especially when population fragmentation disrupts gene flow. Estimates of effective population size (Ne) canExpand

Parallel adaptive evolution of Atlantic cod on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean in response to temperature
Despite the enormous economic and ecological importance of marine organisms, the spatial scales of adaptation and biocomplexity remain largely unknown. Yet, the preservation of local stocks thatExpand

Understanding and estimating effective population size for practical application in marine species management.
Effective population size (N(e)) determines the strength of genetic drift in a population and has long been recognized as an important parameter for evaluating conservation status and threats toExpand

Power for detecting genetic divergence: differences between statistical methods and marker loci
Information on statistical power is critical when planning investigations and evaluating empirical data, but actual power estimates are rarely presented in population genetic studies. We usedExpand

Disentangling the Effects of Evolutionary, Demographic, and Environmental Factors Influencing Genetic Structure of Natural Populations: Atlantic Herring as a Case Study
The spatial structuring of intraspecific genetic diversity is the result of random genetic drift, natural selection, migration, mutation, and their interaction with historical processes. TheExpand

The genetic structure of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) around Iceland: insight from microsatellites, the Pan I locus, and tagging experiments
Allelic variation at nine microsatellite loci and the Pan I locus provides evidence that Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) around Iceland is genetically structured (FST = 0.003 and FST = 0.261,Expand

Biocomplexity in a highly migratory pelagic marine fish, Atlantic herring
The existence of biologically differentiated populations has been credited with a major role in conferring sustainability and in buffering overall productivity of anadromous fish population complexesExpand

Phylogeography of the Percichthyidae (Pisces) in Patagonia: roles of orogeny, glaciation, and volcanism
We used molecular evidence to examine the roles that vicariance mechanisms (mountain‐building and drainage changes during the Pleistocene) have played in producing phylogeographical structure withinExpand

A comparison of several measures of genetic distance and population structure with microsatellite data: bias and sampling variance
Because of their rapid mutation rate and resulting large number of alleles, microsatellite DNA are well suited to examine the genetic or demographic structure of fish populations. However, the largeExpand

Long‐term effective population sizes, temporal stability of genetic composition and potential for local adaptation in anadromous brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations
We examined the long‐term temporal (1910s to 1990s) genetic variation at eight microsatellite DNA loci in brown trout (Salmo trutta L) collected from five anadromous populations in Denmark to assessExpand
