Life histories for structured populations in fluctuating environments

This project aims at extending the Classical life history theory by merging an efficient state-dependent optimization technique that works well with structured populations (dynamic programmring) with evolutionary population dynamics (adaptive dynamics). T he resulting methodology can thus find op...

Sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus L.) on the Norwegian coast: fresh water colonisation, divergence rates and adaptive speciation

This project will investigate how historical contingency and evolutionary mechanisms interact to prime ecological and physiological adaptation, which may ultimately result in speciation in the threespined stickleback. This primarily marine species has fou nded numerous anadromous- and stationary ...

Behavioral syndromes in salmonid fish: Ecological and evolutionary implications

Variation in the physiological stress response has been correlated to a number of major axes of variation in behavior, including activity, shyness-boldness, and aggression. Sih and co-workers recently coined the term behavioral syndromes for this phenomen on, and pointed out several important eco...

VANN: Hybridisation between Atlantic salmon and brown trout in Gyrodactylus-infected rivers: consequences for population viability

Extremely high proportions of hybrids between Atlantic salmon and brown trout have recently been detected in rivers Vefsna and Driva. Both rivers have been infected by the parasite Gyrodactylus salaris since the 1970s, causing a dramatic decline in juveni le salmon densities. Reasons for the rema...
