Sample text

This belief has led to objections when other taxonomic units, such as varieties of plants or breeds of animals, are described as going extinct. The broader view of evolution developed in this chapter points a way out of this confusion. Populations stand at the center of evolution. In some cases, we aggregate populations into entities we call varieties and species. The extinction of a variety or species happens when all its populations disappear, that is, go extinct. Extinction, like evolution, is a population process.

The report blamed overfishing and damage to breeding grounds. 17 Evolutionary history can revise this interpretation by demonstrating the effect of humans on fish evolution as well as ecology. ” Hatchery fish clumped together, carried less genetic variation, and were smaller than wild fish. These factors combined to increase mortality. Fishways in dams reinforced these trends. 18 Taylor’s study emphasizes the impact of human beings on fish populations in streams and rivers. We can push his analysis further by drawing on fishery biologists to show that anthropogenic selection at sea also reduced catches.

By catching oceangoing salmon, however, fishers altered the odds. Ocean nets selected against fish that went to sea and grew large. Now jack and parr had as much chance at reproducing as the traditionalists who Hunting and Fishing 27 ventured out to sea, although they produced fewer and smaller offspring than did large fish. 20 This revision of the received view becomes more persuasive when we find similar patterns elsewhere. Whitefish in North American freshwater lakes once supported commercial fishing.
