The Effect of Reproduction Biotopes on the Genetic Differentiation of Populations of Sockeye Salmon Oncorhynchus nerka

Abstract

Variation of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was examined in nine populations from three lake-river systems of Chukotka and Kamchatka. Significant differences were found between most of the sockeye salmon samples studied. The genetic differences among populations were not high and often did not correlate with the geographical distances between them. The low… (More)
