Rank and Order: Evaluating the Performance of SNPs for Individual Assignment in a Non-Model Organism.

Rank and Order: Evaluating the Performance of SNPs for Individual Assignment in a Non-Model Organism.
PLoS One. 2012;7(11):e49018
Authors: Storer CG, Pascal CE, Roberts SB, Templin WD, Seeb LW, Seeb JE
Abstract
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are valuable tools for ecological and evolutionary studies. In non-model species, the use of SNPs has been limited by the number of markers available. However, new technologies and decreasing technology costs have facilitated the discovery of a constantly increasing number of SNPs.

An Energy Diet: Cut Back on Water, Pay More Attention to Fish

An Energy Diet: Cut Back on Water, Pay More Attention to Fish
The water-energy nexus is the subject of huge debate and research: How can the United States meet future energy demands while conserving precious water resources? The focus has mostly been on how various energy sources impact both water quantity and quality, with little attention paid to what this means for fish and other freshwater biodiversity.

Coexistence and origin of trophic ecotypes of pygmy whitefish, Prosopium coulterii, in a south-western Alaskan lake

Coexistence and origin of trophic ecotypes of pygmy whitefish, Prosopium coulterii, in a south-western Alaskan lake
Journal of Evolutionary Biology, doi: 10.1111/jeb.12011
Authors: C. P. Gowell*†, T. P. Quinn† & E. B. Taylor‡
*Department of Biology, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA, USA

‡Department of Zoology, Biodiversity Research Centre and Beaty Biodiversity Museum, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Abstract
Ecologically, morphologically and genetically distinct populations within single taxa often coexist in postglacial lakes and have provided important model systems with which to investigate ecological and evolutionary processes such as niche partitioning and ecological speciation.
