Patterns of ecosystem metabolism in the Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia with links to capture fisheries.
PLoS One. 2013;8(8):e71395
Authors: Holtgrieve GW, Arias ME, Irvine KN, Lamberts D, Ward EJ, Kummu M, Koponen J, Sarkkula J, Richey JE
Abstract
The Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia is a dynamic flood-pulsed ecosystem that annually increases its surface area from roughly 2,500 km(2) to over 12,500 km(2) driven by seasonal flooding from the Mekong River.

Detection and mapping of QTL for temperature tolerance and body size in Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) using genotyping by sequencing.

Detection and mapping of QTL for temperature tolerance and body size in Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) using genotyping by sequencing.
Evol Appl. 2014 Apr;7(4):480-92
Authors: Everett MV, Seeb JE
Abstract
Understanding how organisms interact with their environments is increasingly important for conservation efforts in many species, especially in light of highly anticipated climate changes. One method for understanding this relationship is to use genetic maps and QTL mapping to detect genomic regions linked to phenotypic traits of importance for adaptation.

Parallel signatures of selection in temporally-isolated lineages of pink salmon.

Parallel signatures of selection in temporally-isolated lineages of pink salmon.
Mol Ecol. 2014 Apr 25;
Authors: Seeb LW, Waples RK, Limborg MT, Warheit KI, Pascal CE, Seeb JE
Abstract
Studying the effect of similar environments on diverse genetic backgrounds has long been a goal of evolutionary biologists with studies typically relying on experimental approaches. Pink salmon, a highly-abundant and widely-ranging salmonid, provide a naturally-occurring opportunity to study the effects of similar environments on divergent genetic backgrounds due to a strict two-year semelparous life-history.

Practical Science Communication Strategies for Graduate Students.

Practical Science Communication Strategies for Graduate Students.
Conserv Biol. 2014 Apr 24;
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.

Migratory Movements of Pygmy Blue Whales (Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda) between Australia and Indonesia as Revealed by Satellite Telemetry.

Migratory Movements of Pygmy Blue Whales (Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda) between Australia and Indonesia as Revealed by Satellite Telemetry.
PLoS One. 2014;9(4):e93578
Authors: Double MC, Andrews-Goff V, Jenner KC, Jenner MN, Laverick SM, Branch TA, Gales NJ
Abstract
In Australian waters during the austral summer, pygmy blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda) occur predictably in two distinct feeding areas off western and southern Australia.

Predator avoidance during reproduction: diel movements by spawning sockeye salmon between stream and lake habitats.

Predator avoidance during reproduction: diel movements by spawning sockeye salmon between stream and lake habitats.
J Anim Ecol. 2014 Apr 5;
Authors: Bentley KT, Schindler DE, Cline TJ, Armstrong JB, Macias D, Ciepiela LR, Hilborn R
Abstract
1. Daily movements of mobile organisms between habitats in response to changing trade-offs between predation risk and foraging gains are well established; however, less in known about whether similar tactics are used during reproduction, a time period when many organisms are particularly vulnerable to predators.

Pesticides in urban streams and prespawn mortality of Pacific coho salmon.
Arch Environ Contam Toxicol. 2013 Oct;65(3):546-54
Authors: King KA, Grue CE, Grassley JM, Hearsey JW
Abstract
The listing of several runs of Pacific salmon as threatened or endangered and associated federal, state, and local efforts to restore/enhance salmon habitat in the Pacific Northwest make it imperative that the factors associated with these population declines are understood.

ss3sim: An R Package for Fisheries Stock Assessment Simulation with Stock Synthesis.

ss3sim: An R Package for Fisheries Stock Assessment Simulation with Stock Synthesis.
PLoS One. 2014;9(4):e92725
Authors: Anderson SC, Monnahan CC, Johnson KF, Ono K, Valero JL
Abstract
Simulation testing is an important approach to evaluating fishery stock assessment methods. In the last decade, the fisheries stock assessment modeling framework Stock Synthesis (SS3) has become widely used around the world. However, there lacks a generalized and scriptable framework for SS3 simulation testing.
