Long distance migration is a major factor driving local adaptation at continental scale in a Pacific Salmon

Quentin Rougemont
Inferring the genomic basis of local adaptation is a long-standing goal of evolutionary biology. Beyond its fundamental evolutionary implications, such knowledge can guide conservation decisions for populations of conservation and management concern. Here, we investigated the genomic basis of local adaptation in the Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) across its entirety North American range. We hypothesized that extensive spatial variation in environmental conditions and the species’ homing behavior may promote the establishment of local adaptation. We...
