A graduate opportunity (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) is available to study adaptive differences in juvenile growth and metabolism among different ecotypes of rainbow trout (large lake piscivores vs. insectivores).
Selection for differences in growth is a fundamental driver of adaptive differentiation among species and populations. However, the physiological drivers and consequences of high growth remain poorly understood, as are the ecological tradeoffs that select for differences in growth.
Piscivorous and insectivorous populations of rainbow trout differ in maximum body size and growth, providing a good model for understanding the associations between […]
