• Are we underestimating the occurrence of sympatric populations? 

      Jorde, Per Erik; Andersson, Anastasia; Ryman, Nils; Laikre, Linda (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Sympatric populations are conspecific populations that coexist spatially. They are of interest in evolutionary biology by representing the potential first steps of sympatric speciation and are important to identify and ...
    • Baltic Sea genetic biodiversity: Current knowledge relating to conservation management 

      Wennerström, Lovisa; Jansson, Eeva; Laikre, Linda (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      1. The Baltic Sea has a rare type of brackish water environment which harbours unique genetic lineages of many species. The area is highly influenced by anthropogenic activities and is affected by eutrophication, climate ...
    • Complex genetic diversity patterns of cryptic, sympatric brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations in tiny mountain lakes 

      Andersson, Anastasia; Jansson, Eeva; Wennerström, Lovisa; Chiriboga, Fidel; Arnyasi, Mariann; Kent, Matthew Peter; Ryman, Nils; Laikre, Linda (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
    • Recurrent convergent evolution at amino acid residue 261 in fish rhodopsin 

      Hill, Jason; Enbody, Erik D.; Pettersson, Mats E.; Sprehn, C. Grace; Bekkevold, Dorte; Folkvord, Arild; Laikre, Linda; Kleinau, Gunnar; Scheerer, Patrick; Andersson, Leif (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The evolutionary process that occurs when a species colonizes a new environment provides an opportunity to explore the mechanisms underlying genetic adaptation, which is essential knowledge for understanding evolution and ...
    • The genetic basis for ecological adaptation of the Atlantic herring revealed by genome sequencing 

      Barrio, Alvaro Martinez; Lamichhaney, Sangeet; Fan, Guangyi; Rafati, Nima; Pettersson, Mats; Zhang, He; Dainat, Jacques; Ekman, Diana; Höppner, Marc P.; Jern, Patric; Martin, Marcel; Nystedt, Björn; Liu, Xin; Chen, Wenbin; Liang, Xinming; Shi, Chengcheng; Fu, Yuanyuan; Ma, Kailong; Zhan, Xiao; Feng, Chungang; Gustafson, Ulla; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Almén, Markus Sällman; Blass, Martina; Casini, Michele; Folkvord, Arild; Laikre, Linda; Ryman, Nils; Lee, Simon Ming-Yuen; Xu, Xun; Andersson, Leif (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-03)
      Ecological adaptation is of major relevance to speciation and sustainable population management, but the underlying genetic factors are typically hard to study in natural populations due to genetic differentiation caused ...
