The evolutionary ecology of alternative migratory tactics in salmonid fishes
Extensive individual variation in spatial behaviour is a common feature among species that exhibit migratory life cycles. Nowhere is this more evident than in salmonid fishes; individual fish mayExpand

An integrated comparison of captive-bred and wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar): Implications for supportive breeding programs
Supportive breeding is a strategy consisting in maintaining a pool of locally-adapted wild genitors in captivity whose offspring are released in the wild at an early developmental stage. In thisExpand

Genome-wide survey of the gene expression response to saprolegniasis in Atlantic salmon.
Pathogenic saprolegniaceae species are among the major disease-causing agents in farmed salmonids and in freshwater fish in general. Recent studies have used high-throughput cDNA-based methods toExpand

The genetic basis of early‐life morphological traits and their relation to alternative male reproductive tactics in Atlantic salmon
Although heritability estimates for traits potentially under natural selection are increasingly being reported, their estimation remains a challenge if we are to understand the patterns of adaptiveExpand

The Eco-Evolutionary Imperative: Revisiting Weed Management in the Midst of an Herbicide Resistance Crisis
Modern weed science is at a crossroads. Born out of advances in chemistry, it has focused on minimizing weed competition with genetically uniform crops and heavy reliance on herbicides.Expand

Alternative developmental pathways and the propensity to migrate: a case study in the Atlantic salmon
Migratory behaviour with its associated phenotypic changes is generally viewed as an adaptive strategy because it incurs survival or reproductive advantages to migrants. The development of a migrantExpand

Heritable variation in host tolerance and resistance inferred from a wild host–parasite system
Hosts have evolved two distinct defence strategies against parasites: resistance (which prevents infection or limit parasite growth) and tolerance (which alleviates the fitness consequences ofExpand

The morphological plastic response to water current velocity varies with age and sexual state in juvenile Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar
SUMMARY 1. Salmonids, like many other fish species, exhibit morphological plasticity to variations in water current velocity. However, little is known about how this response varies with age andExpand

Genotype‐by‐genotype interactions between an insect and its pathogen
Genotype‐by‐genotype (G×G) interactions are an essential requirement for the coevolution of hosts and parasites, but have only been documented in a small number of animal model systems. G×G effectsExpand

Conditions affecting the timing and magnitude of Hendra virus shedding across pteropodid bat populations in Australia.
Understanding infection dynamics in animal hosts is fundamental to managing spillover and emergence of zoonotic infections. Hendra virus is endemic in Australian pteropodid bat populations and can beExpand
