Long-term change in a behavioural trait: truncated spawning distribution and demography in Northeast Arctic cod (Wiley, 2015-04)Harvesting may be a potent driver of demographic change and contemporary evolution, which both may have great impacts on animal populations. Research has focused on changes in phenotypic traits that are easily quantifiable ...Journal article
Opposite selection on behavioural types by active and passive fishing gears in a simulated guppy Poecilia reticulata fishery (Wiley, 2015-03)This study assessed whether fishing gear was selective on behavioural traits, such as boldness and activity, and how this was related with a productivity trait, growth. Female guppies Poecilia reticulata were screened for ...Journal article
Timing is everything: Fishing-season placement may represent the most important angling-induced evolutionary pressure on Atlantic salmon populations (Wiley, 2017)Fisheries-induced evolution can change the trajectory of wild fish populations by selectively targeting certain phenotypes. For important fish species like Atlantic salmon, this could have large implications for their ...Journal article
