      The great auk was once abundant and distributed across the North Atlantic. It is now extinct, having been heavily exploited for its eggs, meat, and feathers. We investigated the impact of human hunting on its demise by ...
    • Disentangling the effects of sex, life history and genetic background in Atlantic salmon: growth, heart and liver under common garden conditions 

      Perry, William Bernard; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Brodie, Christopher; Medina, Angela C.; Pillay, Kirthana G.; Egerton, Anna; Harvey, Alison C.; Creer, Simon; Llewellyn, Martin; Taylor, Martin I.; Carvalho, Gary R.; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Livestock domestication has long been a part of agriculture, estimated to have first occurred approximately 10 000 years ago. Despite the plethora of traits studied, there is little understanding of the possible impacts ...
    • Does density influence relative growth performance of farm, wild and F1 hybrid Atlantic salmon in semi-natural and hatchery common garden conditions? 

      Harvey, Alison C.; Juleff, Gareth; Carvalho, Gary R.; Taylor, Martin I.; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Creer, Simon; Dyrhovden, Lise; Matre, Ivar Helge; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-07)
      The conditions encountered by Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., in aquaculture are markedly different from the natural environment. Typically, farmed salmon experience much higher densities than wild individuals, and may ...
    • Epistatic regulation of growth in Atlantic salmon revealed: a QTL study performed on the domesticated-wild interface 

      Besnier, Francois; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Harvey, Alison C.; Carvalho, Gary R.; Bekkevold, Dorte; Taylor, Martin I.; Creer, Simon; Nielsen, Einar Eg; Skaala, Øystein; Ayllon, Fernando; Dahle, Geir; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background Quantitative traits are typically considered to be under additive genetic control. Although there are indications that non-additive factors have the potential to contribute to trait variation, experimental ...
