The threespine stickleback is a small fish of temperate coastal and fresh waters that exhibits extraordinary phenotypic diversity. Benefiting from its amenability to observation in the field and manipulation in the laboratory, Niko Tinbergen pioneered the threespine stickleback's.

Introduction to the evolutionary biology of the threespine stickleback. 1: Systematics and morphology of the Gasterosteiformes. 2: Allozyme variation of the Gasterosteus aculeatus complex. 3: Physiological ecology and evolution.

4: Energy allocation. 5: Life history variation in females. 6: Ecology on the breeding grounds. 7: Evolution of foraging behaviour. 8: Predators and morphological.

Providing a synthesis of fundamental insights into the evolutionary processes of the threespine stickleback, a small fish of temperate coastal and fresh waters, this book incorporates chapters by active workers who employ this variable species to address diverse questions in evolutionary biology.

It covers developments in stickleback reproductive physiology from onward and summarizes studies performed ― mainly within the fields of behavioral ecology and physiology ― on some of the less-studied stickleback species.

The book touches on the biology, in particular the behavioral ecology, of the spined : Hardcover. evolutionary studies. Threespine sticklebacks have been recognized for years as a species particularly amenable to biological study, and the scientific literature analyzing sticklebacks extends from the s through the dawn of modem behavioral biology (in which the threespine stickleback featured prominently) to.

Benefiting from its amenability to observation in the field and manipulation in the laboratory, Niko Tinbergen pioneered the threespine stickleback's use in behavioral studies and established it as a model system in ethology.

The postglacial adaptive radiation of the threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) is one of the best‐studied cases of evolutionary diversification and rapid, repeated speciation. The editors are members of the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University.

A reference genome sequence for threespine sticklebacks, and re-sequencing of 20 additional world-wide populations, reveals loci used repeatedly during vertebrate evolution; multiple chromosome.

Inferring the causes for change in the fossil record has been a persistent problem in evolutionary biology. Three independent lines of evidence indicate that a lineage of the fossil stickleback fish Gasterosteus doryssus experienced directional natural selection for reduction of armor.

Nonetheless, application to this lineage of three methods to infer natural selection in the fossil record Cited by: Book Description. Highlighting the growing importance of the sticklebacks as a model species in emerging fields such as molecular genetics, genomics, and environmental toxicology, Biology of the Three-Spined Stickleback examines data from researchers who use studies of the stickleback to address a wide range of biological issues.
