Title It's About Time! Natural and Unnatural Selection on Migration and Spawning in Pacific Salmon
Creator Quinn, Tom
Subject Oncorhynchus tshawytscha Oncorhynchus kisutch Oncorhynchus nerka natural selection artificial selection adaptation water temperature spawning anadromous fish fish hatcheries fisheries fisheries management fisheries statistics water migration behavior seasonal migration periodicity stream flow
Description Quinn will discuss how natural selection operates on the timing of migration and spawning by salmon. Temperature and flow are the primary physical factors in the evolution and ecology of timing. Salmon seem to be adapting to climate change. Artificial selection from hatcheries and from fisheries can counter or enhance natural selection, with important consequences for salmon.
