Long-term responses of zooplankton to invasion by a planktivorous fish in a subarctic watercourse
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2008-08-13)
<p>1. Introduced or invading predators may have strong impacts on prey populations of the recipient community mediated by direct and indirect interactions. The long‐term progression of predation effects, covering the invasion and establishment phase of alien predators, however, has rarely been documented.</p> <p>2. This paper documents the impact of an invasive, specialized planktivorous fish ...
The role of gill raker number variability in adaptive radiation of coregonid fish
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010-07-27)
Gill raker divergence is a general pattern in adaptive radiations of postglacial fish, but few studies have addressed the adaptive significance of this morphological trait in foraging and eco-evolutionary interactions among predator and prey. Here, a set of subarctic lakes along a diversifying gradient of coregonids was used as the natural setting to explore correlations between gill raker numbers ...
