Adaptive evolutionary conservation: towards a unified concept for defining conservation units.
Recent years have seen a debate over various methods that could objectively prioritize conservation value below the species level. Most prominent among these has been the evolutionarily significantExpand

  • 2 June 2008
Captive breeding programs are increasingly being initiated to prevent the imminent extinction of endangered species and/or populations. But how well can they conserve genetic diversity and fitness,Expand

Extent and scale of local adaptation in salmonid fishes: review and meta-analysis
What is the extent and scale of local adaptation (LA)? How quickly does LA arise? And what is its underlying molecular basis? Our review and meta-analysis on salmonid fishes estimates the frequencyExpand

Effective/census population size ratio estimation: a compendium and appraisal
With an ecological-evolutionary perspective increasingly applied toward the conservation and management of endangered or exploited species, the genetic estimation of effective population size (Ne)Expand

The nature of fisheries- and farming-induced evolution.
Humans have a penchant for unintentionally selecting against that which they desire most. In fishes, unprecedented reductions in abundance have been associated with unprecedented changes inExpand

Comparative estimation of effective population sizes and temporal gene flow in two contrasting population systems.
Estimation of effective population sizes (N(e)) and temporal gene flow (N(e)m, m) has many implications for understanding population structure in evolutionary and conservation biology. However,Expand

Sixty years of anthropogenic pressure: a spatio-temporal genetic analysis of brown trout populations subject to stocking and population declines.
Analyses of historical samples can provide invaluable information on changes to the genetic composition of natural populations resulting from human activities. Here, we analyse 21 microsatellite lociExpand

Consequences of unequal population size, asymmetric gene flow and sex-biased dispersal on population structure in brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis).
Unravelling relationships between dispersal and population structure requires considering the impacts of assumption violations of indirect gene flow models in a given system. We combined temporal,Expand

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 byExpand

Loss of historical immigration and the unsuccessful rehabilitation of extirpated salmon populations
Comprehensive evaluations of multiple genetic factors are rarely undertaken in rehabilitation attempts of extirpated populations, despite a growing need to address why some rehabilitation projectsExpand
