Data from: Parallelism in the oxygen transport system of the lake whitefish: the role of physiological divergence in ecological speciation

Melissa L. Evans, Kim Præbel, Stefano Peruzzi & Louis Bernatchez
In North America, populations of lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) have evolved sympatric “dwarf” and “normal” ecotypes that are associated with distinct trophic niches within lakes. Trophic specialization should place diverging physiological demands on individuals; thus, genes and phenotypes associated with energy production represent ideal candidates for studies of adaptation. Here, we test for parallelism in physiological traits involved in oxygen transport in lake whitefish from Québec, Canada, and Maine, USA. We observed significant divergence in...
