Life history plasticity affects the population structure and distribution of the widespread migratory fish Galaxias brevipinnis

Partial migration, or variation in migratory propensity within populations, has been reported across a range of taxa, including fish. Otolith microchemistry has revealed a high degree of life history plasticity in many amphidromous species, with diadromous and non-diadromous recruitment occurring. We examined this plasticity and its effect on population structure, dispersal and recruitment in Galaxias brevipinnis, an amphidromous fish widespread around New Zealand. We used otolith...[Show more]
