Fish population genetic structure shaped by hydroelectric power plants in the upper Rhine catchment

Alexandre Gouskov, Marta Reyes, Lisa Wirtner-Bitterlin & Christoph Vorburger
The Rhine catchment in Switzerland has been transformed by a chain of hydroelectric power stations. We addressed the impact of fragmentation on the genetic structure of fish populations by focusing on the European chub (Squalius cephalus). This fish species is not stocked and copes well with altered habitats, enabling an assessment of the effects of fragmentation per se. Using microsatellites, we genotyped 2133 chub from 47 sites within the catchment fragmented by 37 hydroelectric power...
