The roles of extrinsic and intrinsic factors in the freshwater life-history dynamics of a migratory salmonid

July 11, 2018. Key life-cycle transitions, such as metamorphosis or migration, can be altered by a variety of external factors, such as climate variation, strong species interactions, and management intervention, or modulated by density dependence. Given that these life-history transitions can influence population dynamics, understanding the simultaneous effects of intrinsic …
