Oceanography and life history predict contrasting genetic population structure in two Antarctic fish species.

Oceanography and life history predict contrasting genetic population structure in two Antarctic fish species.
Evol Appl. 2015 Jun;8(5):486-509
Authors: Young EF, Belchier M, Hauser L, Horsburgh GJ, Meredith MP, Murphy EJ, Pascoal S, Rock J, Tysklind N, Carvalho GR
Abstract
Understanding the key drivers of population connectivity in the marine environment is essential for the effective management of natural resources. Although several different approaches to evaluating connectivity have been used, they are rarely integrated quantitatively.

Conserv Biol. 2014 Oct;28(5):1225-35
Authors: Kuehne LM, Twardochleb LA, Fritschie KJ, Mims MC, Lawrence DJ, Gibson PP, Stewart-Koster B, Olden JD
Abstract
Development of skills in science communication is a well-acknowledged gap in graduate training, but the constraints that accompany research (limited time, resources, and knowledge of opportunities) make it challenging to acquire these proficiencies.

Evolutionary rescue in a changing world.
Trends Ecol Evol. 2014 Sep;29(9):521-30
Authors: Carlson SM, Cunningham CJ, Westley PA
Abstract
Evolutionary rescue occurs when adaptive evolutionary change restores positive growth to declining populations and prevents extinction. Here we outline the diagnostic features of evolutionary rescue and distinguish this phenomenon from demographic and genetic rescue. We then synthesize the rapidly accumulating theoretical and experimental studies of evolutionary rescue, highlighting the demographic, genetic, and extrinsic factors that affect the probability of rescue.

Aquatic versus terrestrial attachment: Water makes a difference

By Adam Summers and Petra Ditsche, in Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology
Abstract
Animal attachment to a substrate is very different in terrestrial and aquatic environments. We discuss variations in both the forces acting to detach animals and forces of attachment. While in a terrestrial environment gravity is commonly understood as the most important detachment force, under submerged conditions gravity is nearly balanced out by buoyancy and therefore matters little.

Phenotype flexibility in wild fish: Dolly Varden regulate assimilative capacity to capitalize on annual pulsed subsidies.
J Anim Ecol. 2013 Sep;82(5):966-75
Authors: Armstrong JB, Bond MH
Abstract
1. Large digestive organs increase rates of energy gain when food is plentiful but are costly to maintain and increase rates of energy loss when food is scarce. The physiological adaptations to this trade-off differ depending on the scale and predictability of variation in food abundance.
