Society, Environment and Human Security in the Arctic Barents Region

The Arctic-Barents Region is facing numerous pressures from a variety of sources, including the effect of environmental changes and extractive industrial developments. The threats arising out of

Low but significant genetic differentiation underlies biologically meaningful phenotypic divergence in a large Atlantic salmon population

It is suggested that different evolutionary processes affect each sub-population and that hybridization and subsequent selection may maintain low genetic differentiation without hindering adaptive divergence.

Sex-dependent dominance at a single locus maintains variation in age at maturity in Atlantic salmon

This work finds that vestigial-like family member 3 (VGLL3) exhibits sex-dependent dominance in salmon, promoting earlier and later maturation in males and females, respectively, and provides the first empirical example of dominance reversal permitting greater optimisation of phenotypes within each sex.

Densities of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) fry in relation to physical habitat, spawning redd distribution and parr abundance in a small subarctic river

The result supports previous findings that the spatial distribution of spawning areas is an important factor that affects habitat selection of Atlantic salmon fry, and suggests that physical habitat variables may rather act as limiting edges than determinants of habitats selection of fry at within-reach scales.

Results suggest that useful models can be derived and if a river system is mapped, and stratified by habitat, then smolt yield could be predicted and the required egg deposition could be estimated, and future research could provide useful models for assessing productive capacity of a habitat, and optimum densities.

Preserving genes, species, or ecosystems? Healing the fractured foundations of conservation policy

The scientific foundations of conservation policy are the subject of a recent tripolar debate, with systematists arguing for the primacy of phylogenetic rankings, ecologists arguing for protection at

Ecology and Management of Atlantic Salmon

Reviews advances in the understanding of the biology, ecology and management of the Atlantic salmon throughout its geographical range, and examines the effects on salmon of afforestation, pollution,
