> Evolutionary studies of population dynamics typically proceed with the notion that genetic change is a response to ecological variation. However, these dynamics reflect evolutionary and ecological processes acting in concert. Conventional ways of exploring their relationship do not fully account for this interaction and fail to directly link evolutionary change to population demography. I explore the population dynamics of two wild populations of steelhead by reconstructing their multi-generation pedigrees, characterizing selection on key traits, determining to what extent the evolution of life history influences phenotypic variation, and then applying eco-evolutionary models to ask whether and how the evolutionary dynamics of life history influence demography in these remarkable fish.
> Jeff Hard is with the Conservation Biology Division’s Genetics and Evolution Program at NOAA Fisheries’ Northwest Fisheries Science Center, where he has been since 1992. He received a BS in Marine Biology from Oregon State University, an MS in Fisheries Science from the University of Alaska, and a PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from the University of Oregon. He grew up in Alaska and has carried on field work since 1978 at a remote research station in the Alexander Archipelago of southeastern Alaska, conducting studies on five species of Pacific salmon and steelhead. His research centers on the population biology and ecological genetics of fishes, with an emphasis on characterizing the quantitative genetic architecture of phenotypic variation and its responses to natural and human-induced selection.
