Title Local adaptation, dispersal, and gene flow in a metapopulation of sockeye salmon
Creator Peterson, Daniel Alexander
Subject — Fisheries and aquatic sciences fisheries
Description Gene flow within a metapopulation depends on the reproductive success of dispersers after immigration, but few empirical studies have measured the reproductive contributions of dispersers from distinct natal populations. The local adaptation frequently observed within metapopulations of anadromous salmonids could exert strong selection against immigrants with phenotypes adapted to ecologically distinct habitats. Here, we used genetic parentage analysis to directly measure the reproductive... Thesis (Master's)--University of Washington, 2012
