Abstract In the early years of his research on the native trouts of western North America, Behnke (1960, 1966, 1979) observed consistent differences in certain meristic characters between the cutthroat trout of the Humboldt River drainage and those from the Truckee, Carson, and Walker river drainages of the Lahontan Basin, and proposed that the Humboldt trout be recognized as a distinct subspecies. He coined the subspecies name humboldtensis, but a formal description was never published. Here… 

Return of a giant: DNA from archival museum samples helps to identify a unique cutthroat trout lineage formerly thought to be extinct

TLDR
Data on the distribution of morphological, meristic and genetic data for Lahontan cutthroat trout suggests that recovery strategies, particularly in the large lacustrine habitats, should consider this lineage as an important part of the genetic legacy of this species.

Introgression of exotic Cervus (nippon and canadensis) into red deer (Cervus elaphus) populations in Scotland and the English Lake District

TLDR
The extent of introgression between sika and red deer is investigated in 2,943 deer sampled from around Scotland and from the English Lake District using the Bayesian clustering software STRUCTURE and a diagnostic mitochondrial marker for red deer and sika is used.

Morphological and genetic concordance of cutthroat trout diversification from western North America

25 The cutthroat trout, Oncorhynchus clarkii (Richardson, 1836), is one of the most widely 26 distributed species of freshwater fish in western North America. Occupying a diverse range of 27

A Molecular Taxonomy of Cottus in western North America

TLDR
This work establishes a benchmark for understanding the diversity of sculpin in western North America and suggests new species hypotheses both there and in eastern North America.

Single nucleotide polymorphism discovery in cutthroat trout subspecies using genome reduction, barcoding, and 454 pyro-sequencing

TLDR
Genomic and bioinformatic protocols were successfully implemented to identify 125 nuclear SNPs that are capable of differentiating most subspecies of cutthroat trout from one another and can be a valuable tool for management agencies in their efforts to evaluate the genetic structure of cut Throat trout populations prior to constructing and implementing conservation plans.

Morphological and genetic concordance of cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii) diversification from western North America

The cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii (Richardson, 1836)) is one of the most widely distributed species of freshwater fish in western North America. Occupying a diverse range of habitats, they ...

Genomic Analysis Reveals Genetic Distinctiveness of the Paiute Cutthroat Trout Oncorhynchus clarkii seleniris

TLDR
A genomic analysis of Cutthroat Trout subspecies and populations and phylogenetic reconstructions show the PCT to be a distinct evolutionary lineage that diverged from LCT before the LCT differentiated into its current populations.

Watershed boundaries and geographic isolation: patterns of diversification in cutthroat trout from western North America

TLDR
This study indicates that watershed boundaries can be an organizing factor isolating genetic diversity in fishes; however, historical connections between watersheds can also influence the template of isolation.

Assessing the Conservation Value of Hybridized Cutthroat Trout Populations in the Quinn River Drainage, Nevada

TLDR
This data indicates that the Lahontan cutthroat trout has survived in a desert environment by living in large, interconnected stream and/or stream-and-lake systems that support a metapopulation dynamic.

Population Genetic Structure in Lahontan Cutthroat Trout

TLDR
The genetic population structure of cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarki within the Lahontan Basin complex is examined to find significant differences in microsatellite diversity among the three putative subspecies found in this area.

TLDR
If enough data are available, genetic distance between any pair of organisms can be measured in terms of D, and this measure is applicable to any kind of organism without regard to ploidy or mating scheme.
