• A bio-economic analysis of harvest control rules for the Northeast Arctic cod fishery 

      Eikeset, Anne Marie; Richter, Andries Peter; Dankel, Dorothy Jane; Dunlop, Erin; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Dieckmann, Ulf; Stenseth, Nils Christian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-05)
      Harvest control rules (HCRs) have been implemented for many fisheries worldwide. However, in most instances, those HCRs are not based on the explicit feedbacks between stock properties and economic considerations. This ...
    • Evolution of age and length at maturation of Alaskan salmon under size-selective harvest 

      Kendall, Neala W.; Dieckmann, Ulf; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Punt, André E.; Quinn, Thomas P. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-02)
      Spatial and temporal trends and variation in life-history traits, including age and length at maturation, can be influenced by environmental and anthropogenic processes, including size-selective exploitation. Spawning ...
    • Fisheries-induced evolution 

      Heino, Mikko Petteri; Diaz Pauli, Beatriz; Dieckmann, Ulf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-12)
      Increased mortality from fishing is expected to favor faster life histories, realized through earlier maturation, increased reproductive investment, and reduced postmaturation growth. There is also direct and indirect ...
    • The generalization of Gulland’s method: How to estimate maturity ogives when juvenile data are missing while spawner demography is known 

      Heino, Mikko Petteri; Godø, Olav Rune; Dieckmann, Ulf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The proportions of mature individuals at age or length, collectively known as the maturity ogive, are a key population characteristic and serve as critical input to age-disaggregated stock assessments. John Gulland showed ...
    • Life-history implications of the allometric scaling of growth 

      Boukal, David S.; Dieckmann, Ulf; Enberg, Katja; Heino, Mikko Petteri; Jørgensen, Christian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-10-21)
      Several phenomenological descriptions, such as the von Bertalanffy growth model, have been widely used to describe size-at-age and individual growth across a diverse range of organisms. However, for modelling life histories, ...
    • Reproductive investment in Atlantic cod off Newfoundland: Contrasting trends between males and females 

      Baulier, Loic; Morgan, M. Joanne; Lilly, George R.; Dieckmann, Ulf; Heino, Mikko Petteri (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-08-31)
      Life history theory predicts selection for higher reproductive investment in response to increased mortality among mature individuals. We tested this prediction over the period from 1978 to 2013 for three populations of ...
