Volcanoes serve as natural laboratories expanding our understanding of the recent and past ecological and evolutionary processes. Here, we present data elucidating the developmental and phenotypic transformations providing rapid adaptation for the salmonid fish, Salvelinus malma, to volcanic impact. After being isolated by the mudflow in 1996, the locked descendants of sea-run charr managed to survive in the highly turbid and toxic environment. Initially, the population underwent a phase of… 

Lizards as models to explore the ecological and neuroanatomical correlates of miniaturization

TLDR
This study brings into light the potential contributions ofminiaturized lizards to explain patterns of body size evolution and its impact on ecology and neuroanatomy and reveals the need to study the natural history of miniaturized species, particularly in relation to their sensory and physiological ecology.

Assessment of Coilia mystus and C. nasus in the Yangtze River Estuary, China, Using a Length-Based Approach

An assessment of the stock status and historical changes in abundance of Coilia mystus and C. nasus in the Yangtze River Estuary, China, was carried out based on field surveys conducted in 2019–2020

Miniaturization

The miniaturization of equipment is an important option for process intensification at the process unit level, with various possibilities such as micromixers, micro heat exchangers, microreactors

Stream resident Dolly Varden Salvelinus malma of Kamchatka Peninsula

TLDR
The most specialized population that in the majority of its biological characteristics is closely related to Dolly Varden of the southern Kurils was found in the thermal water course of southwestern extremity of the peninsula.

Developmental abnormalities in salmonids (Salmonidae) under the conditions of large-scale volcanic pollution of their spawning ground (using dolly varden Salvelinus malma as an example)

  • E. Esin
  • Environmental Science
    Russian Journal of Developmental Biology

TLDR
Rivers originating from the areas of active volcanism in Kamchatka serve a spawning ground for anadromous and resident populations of dolly varden and are subjected to chronic pollution with dissolved toxicants and suspended mineral particles.

On the Dolly Varden’s Salvelinus malma (Salmonidae) biology in Kamchatkan spawning rivers of the volcanic areas

  • E. Esin
  • Environmental Science
    Journal of Ichthyology
  • 2017
TLDR
Either the growth rate or the length variability within the age groups were not reduced during the maturation period in the landlocked groups comparing with fish from reference streams, however the weakened individuals with an extremely low body weight were observed among the landlock fish during maturing.

Maturation responses of salmonids to changing developmental opportunities

TLDR
In the absence of a fishery, genetic evidence suggests that stabilising selection would ultimately restore the anadromous, slower-maturing pattern as the predominant life style to such a stock.

Polymorphism and speciation in Arctic charr

The Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus exhibits 1–4 sympatric morphs in postglacial lakes, of which one or two are epibenthic zoobenthos feeders, one is a limnetic planktivore and one is a piscivorous

Special traits of the ichthyofauna and extremal life conditions in the river delta of a volcanic region (the Fal’shivaya River, South-Eastern Kamchatka)

TLDR
It is shown that extremal life conditions for hydrobionts are formed under the influence of volcanic activity: excess of maximum admissible concentration of injurious substances for water bodies of fish cultural importance by five elements, turbidity up to 371.5 mg/l, and pH up to 5.3.

A submarine volcanic eruption leads to a novel microbial habitat

Submarine volcanic eruptions are major catastrophic events that allow investigation of the colonization mechanisms of newly formed seabed. We explored the seafloor after the eruption of the Tagoro

Unspecific histological and hematological alterations in anadromous and resident Salvelinus malma induced by volcanogenic pollution

TLDR
This study examined the liver toxicant accumulation in the overwintered S. malma juveniles, as well as aberrations in gills, internal organs, and peripheral blood, to assess the adaptability of the landlocked and anadromous populations in adverse conditions.

On brook chars of the southern Kuril Islands and a possible mechanism of formation of dwarf forms of Dolly Varden trout Salvelinus malma curilus

TLDR
It was shown that brook dwarfs, in comparison with the migratory form of Salvelinus malma curilus, are characterized by a smaller diameter of spawned eggs, retarded growth and morphogenesis of early juveniles, a mosaic pattern of paedomorphic and peramorphic morphological transformations, and a short lifespan.

Morphophysiological patterns of life history strategy adoption in Dolly Varden Salvelinus malma in Kamchatka

TLDR
The process of formation of resident and migratory life history strategy in Dolly Varden is epigenetic, and the differentiation in a generation into anadromous and resident groupings is completed mainly at the age of 4 years.
