Monster Seminar JAM - Function-valued traits, phenotypic plasticity, and fisheries

Dr. Richard Gomulkiewicz, Department of Mathematics and Biological Science, Washington State University

More Information:
I describe methods designed for analysis of "function-valued traits," which include morphological shapes, growth trajectories, and reaction norms. I discuss how and why fisheries biologists might want to use the methods for statistical analyses of variation in such traits and for modeling their evolution. To illustrate, I show how function- valued approaches have been used to evaluate selection and evolution of phenotypic plasticity in ectotherm thermal performance.
