Isolation and inheritance of novel microsatellites in Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tschawytscha)
TLDR
Characterizing a mutant allele at Ots-2 offers the first step toward understanding mutation rates for chinook microsatellites, and these new loci provide reliable markers for high-resolution population genetics studies of this species. Expand
INFLUENCE OF BARRIERS TO MOVEMENT ON WITHIN‐WATERSHED GENETIC VARIATION OF COASTAL CUTTHROAT TROUT
TLDR
Results indicate that Camp Creek coastal cutthroat trout exist as many small, partially independent populations that are strongly affected by genetic drift, and in headwater streams, barriers to movement can result in genetic and demographic isolation leading to reduced genetic diversity, and potentially compromising long-term population persistence. Expand
Which Genetic Loci Have Greater Population Assignment Power?
SUMMARY WHICHLOCI is a program that determines the relative discriminatory power of alternate genetic loci and loci combinations for population assignment of individuals. AVAILABILITYExpand
Differentiating salmon populations at broad and fine geographical scales with microsatellites and single nucleotide polymorphisms
TLDR
The results indicate that both types of markers are likely to be useful in population genetics studies and that, in some cases, a combination of SNPs and microsatellites may be the most effective suite of loci. Expand
Analysis of microsatellite DNA resolves genetic structure and diversity of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in California's Central Valley
TLDR
With the exception of the discovery of two distinct lineages of spring run, genetic structure accords with the diverse chinook life histories seen in California's Central Valley. Expand
New tetranucleotide microsatellites for fine‐scale discrimination among endangered chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)
TLDR
Highly variable tetranucleotide microsatellites are isolated and developed for the specific goal of increasing discriminatory power among closely related populations, providing a new power towards the reliable differentiation of nonwinter runs. Expand
A latitudinal cline in the Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) Clock gene: evidence for selection on PolyQ length variants
TLDR
It is suggested that length polymorphisms in OtsClock1b PolyQ may be maintained by selection and reflect an adaptation to ecological factors correlated with latitude, such as the seasonally changing day length. Expand
Anthropogenic habitat alteration leads to rapid loss of adaptive variation and restoration potential in wild salmon populations
TLDR
Dramatic, human-induced changes in adult migration characteristics of wild Chinook salmon are explained by rapid evolution at a single locus and can lead to loss of a critical adaptive allele, highlighting the need to conserve and restore critical adaptive variation before the potential for recovery is lost. Expand
Reduced reproductive success of hatchery coho salmon in the wild: insights into most likely mechanisms
TLDR
It is shown with molecular parentage analysis that hatchery coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) had lower reproductive success than wild fish once they reproduced in the wild, and three lines of evidence are reported pointing to the absence of sexual selection in the hatchery as a contributing mechanism for fitness declines of hatchery fish in theWild.
