The use of developmental instability (an individual's failure to produce a consistent phenotype in a given environment) was evaluated to detect the effects of outplanting hatchery fish on wild salmon. Juvenile chinook salmon were collected in 1989, 1990, and 1991 from five drainages in the Snake River Basin. In each drainage we attempted to collect fish(More)
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) employs a two-category system: listing species either as endangered (in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range) or threatened (likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future). Absence of Congressional guidance on how to interpret the terms used in the(More)
Waples (2015) has suggested a formula for the Wahlund effect in a case of unequal contribution of samples from genetically different populations that relates Wright’s inbreeding coefficient, FIS, and normalized variance in allele frequencies between populations, FST. I generalize this relationship to a case of multiple alleles and multiple populations not(More)
Dear Members of the American Genetic Association, I am happy to report that the American Genetic Association (AGA) had another outstanding year in 2013. Membership soared by 19%, buoyed by addition of nearly 100 new individual and student members, which reflects the new (but ongoing) policy of providing complimentary one-year memberships to attendees of the(More)
We describe a new method and a computer program SALMONN b to calculate the effective number of breeders ( N b ) per year in semelparous species with variable age at maturity. The existing temporal method for the ‘salmon’ life history produces an estimate of the harmonic mean N b in the two sampled years. SALMONN b reads genotypic data in standard formats(More)
