Summary

Adaptive divergence is expected among sockeye salmon (Oncorhychus nerka) populations because they spawn in diverse habitats and experience spatially and temporally restricted gene flow. Genetic bottleneck effects are also expected among sockeye salmon populations because they are a highly structured species with excellent colonizing abilities. To test if phenotypic divergence among sockeye salmon populations is due to local adaptation or genetic drift, I compared neutral genetic and heritable phenotypic variation in spawning populations of sockeye salmon throughout the Lake Clark area of Alaska. I assessed nuclear (microsatellites and allozymes) and mitochondrial DNA variation of 15 sockeye salmon populations. Reduced allelic and haplotypic [...]
