In polymorphic populations morphs usually diverge in morphology, ecology and life history, which is most likely driven by adaptations to different environments or resources. Sympatric morphs may develop differences in several life history traits to be able to maximize fitness in alternative niches and habitats. Here, the contrasting life history traits of three sympatric Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus (L.)) morphs in a deep and oligotrophic lake in sub-arctic Norway are addressed. The charr… CONTINUE READING
