Description Life history variation in Pacific salmon has been generally interpreted as adaptive in the sense that individual traits have evolved freely in response to selectional pressures in the environment. Correlations among traits such as early maturity, small adults and small eggs, however, are observed across species, suggesting variation is constrained by mechanisms that restrict adaptation to the trait(s) most important to fitness. Offspring quality is important in this regard, and egg size was... Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of Washington, 1993
