We estimated the proportions of anadromous and freshwater‐resident brown trout (Salmo trutta) in different parts of the subarctic River Näätämöjoki/Neidenelva system (Finland and Norway) using carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen stable isotope analyses of archived scales as identifiers of migration strategy. Our results showed that carbon stable isotope values were the best predictor of migration strategy. Most individuals fell into two clearly distinct groups representing anadromous (47%) or freshwater‐resident (42%) individuals, but some fish had intermediate carbon values suggesting repeated movement between freshwater and the sea. The proportion of anadromous individuals decreased steadily with distance from the sea forming a spatial continuum in migration strategies which is probably maintained by the combination of several factors such as divergent availability of food resources, variable migration costs and genetic differences. These within‐catchment differences in migration strategies should be taken into account in fisheries management practices. ...

Comparison of migratory and resident populations of brown trout reveals candidate genes for migration tendency Lemopoulos, Alexandre; Uusi-Heikkilä, Silva; Huusko, Ari; Vasemägi, Anti; Vainikka, Anssi (Oxford University Press; Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2018)Candidate genes associated with migration have been identified in multiple taxa: including salmonids, many of whom perform migrations requiring a series of physiological changes associated with the freshwater–saltwater ...
Maternally‐transferred thyroid hormones and life‐history variation in birds Hsu, Bin‐Yan; Pakanen, Veli‐Matti; Boner, Winnie; Doligez, Blandine; Eeva, Tapio; Groothuis, Ton G. G.; Korpimäki, Erkki; Laaksonen, Toni; Lelono, Asmoro; Monaghan, Pat; Sarraude, Tom; Thomson, Robert L.; Tolvanen, Jere; Tschirren, Barbara; Vásquez, Rodrigo A.; Ruuskanen, Suvi (Wiley-Blackwell, 2022)1. In vertebrates, thyroid hormones (THs) play an important role in the regulation of growth, development, metabolism, photoperiodic responses and migration. Maternally transferred THs are important for normal early-phase ...
Association Mapping Based on a Common-Garden Migration Experiment Reveals Candidate Genes for Migration Tendency in Brown Trout Lemopoulos, Alexandre; Uusi-Heikkilä, Silva; Hyvärinen, Pekka; Alioravainen, Nico; Prokkola, Jenni M.; Elvidge, Chris K.; Vasemägi, Anti; Vainikka, Anssi (Genetics Society of America, 2019)A better understanding of the environmental and genetic contribution to migratory behavior and the evolution of traits linked to migration is crucial for fish conservation and fisheries management. Up to date, a few genes ...

The Origins of Northern European Autographa Gamma Individuals Evaluated Using Hydrogen Stable Isotopes Torniainen, Jyrki; Mikonranta, Lauri (Wiley-Blackwell, 2018)1. Many insect species are migratory. As the spring progresses, adults gradually depart from their over‐wintering habitats and arrive in northern zones where they reproduce during the summer. Understanding this transgenerational ...
