What can selection experiments teach us about fisheries-induced evolution?
(Oxford University Press, 2014-03)
There is evidence that fisheries are altering the phenotypic composition of fish populations, often in ways that may reduce the value of fish stocks for the exploiters. Despite the increasing number of theoretical and field ...
Ecological and evolutionary effects of harvesting: lessons from the candy-fish experiment
(Oxford University Press, 2013-11)
Understanding the challenges of sustainable fisheries management is not easy for non-specialists, and even many specialists fail to appreciate the potential evolutionary consequences of harvest. We propose candy-fish ...
Evolution of age and length at maturation of Alaskan salmon under size-selective harvest
Spatial and temporal trends and variation in life-history traits, including age and length at maturation, can be influenced by environmental and anthropogenic processes, including size-selective exploitation. Spawning ...
