  • Guðbrandsson, Jóhannes; Pashay Ahi, Ehsan; Franzdottir, Sigridur Rut; Kapralova, Kalina H.; Kristjansson, Bjarni K.; Steinhaeuser, S. Sophie; Maier, Valerie H.; Johannesson, Isak M.; Snorrason, Sigurdur S.; Jonsson, Zophonias O.; Palsson, Arnar (F1000 Research, Ltd., 2016-12-02)
    Species and populations with parallel evolution of specific traits can help illuminate how predictable adaptations and divergence are at the molecular and developmental level. Following the last glacial period, dwarfism and specialized bottom feeding ...

    Streams fluctuate in water flow because of natural (e.g., rain) and human‐induced events (e.g., hydropeaking). Magnitude, frequency, and predictability of these events can have drastic consequences for fish populations. We studied how rapid modifications ...

    Background The developmental basis of craniofacial morphology hinges on interactions of numerous signalling systems. Extensive craniofacial variation in the polymorphic Arctic charr, a member of the salmonid family, from Lake Thingvallavatn (Iceland), ...

    Phenotypic differences between closely related taxa or populations can arise through genetic variation or be environmentally induced, leading to altered transcription of genes during development. Comparative developmental studies of closely related ...

    Diel activity, the partitioning of time between periods of activity and rest, gives insights into how organisms compete for resources in time. Some species show plasticity in the rate and timing of their activity, which enables to study associations ...
  • Guðmundsdóttir, Sigríður; Kristmundsson, Árni; Árnason, Ívar Örn (Inter-Research Science Center, 2017-03-30)
    Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus L. is an important species in Icelandic aquaculture and the most common wild salmonid in Iceland. A study on the course of infection with the bacterium Renibacterium salmoninarum was conducted using 3 different challenge ...

    Intraspecific variation in egg size and its effects on offspring fitness is well documented in fishes. Yet whether or not differential per propagule maternal investment (egg size) can influence phenotypic diversification is little understood. Arctic ...
  • Smárason, Birgir Örn; Ögmundarson, Ólafur; Arnason, Jon; Bjornsdottir, Rannveig; Davidsdottir, Brynhildur (Central Fisheries Research Institute, Trabzon, Turkey, 2017)
    This study utilized Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to quantify the environmental impacts of 1 kg of live-weight Arctic char, cultivated in an Icelandic land-based aquaculture farm. The functional unit included assessments of three different feed types; ...

    Background Understanding the molecular basis of craniofacial variation can provide insights into key developmental mechanisms of adaptive changes and their role in trophic divergence and speciation. Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) is a polymorphic ...
  • Kristjansson, Bjarni K.; Leblanc, Camille (Wiley-Blackwell, 2018-01-03)
    The early stages of intraspecific diversity are important for the evolution of diversification and speciation. Early stages of diversification can be seen in individual specialization, where individuals consume only a portion of the diet of the population ...
