Ghost runs: Management and status assessment of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) returning to British Columbia's central and north coasts (2008)
Journal Article
Price, M. H., Darimont, C. T., Temple, N. F., & MacDuffee, S. M. (2008). Ghost runs: Management and status assessment of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) returning to British Columbia's central and north coasts. Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, 65(12), 2712-2718. https://doi.org/10.1139/F08-174

The management of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) populations, which are spatially distributed across thousands of waterways in coastal British Columbia, Canada, presents considerable challenges to resource managers. We evaluated the efficacy of s... Read More about Ghost runs: Management and status assessment of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) returning to British Columbia's central and north coasts.

Adipose fin condition and flow regime in catfish (2008)
Journal Article
Temple, N. F., & Reimchen, T. E. (2008). Adipose fin condition and flow regime in catfish. Canadian Journal of Zoology, 86(9), 1079-1082. https://doi.org/10.1139/Z08-086

Based on recent evidence suggesting a hydrodynamic function of the small adipose fin in salmonids to turbulent flow conditions, we test for associations between presence and absence of the adipose fin and flow regime in Siluriformes, one of the large...

Hydrodynamic and phylogenetic aspects of the adipose fin in fishes (2004)
Journal Article
Reimchen, T. E., & Temple, N. F. (2004). Hydrodynamic and phylogenetic aspects of the adipose fin in fishes. Canadian Journal of Zoology, 82(6), 910-916. https://doi.org/10.1139/Z04-069

The adipose fin on fishes is a highly conserved and enigmatic, small, non-rayed fin that has persisted from the Mesozoic on some basal teleosts such as salmonids. Using juvenile steelhead, Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1792), ranging from 5 to 18 cm... Read More about Hydrodynamic and phylogenetic aspects of the adipose fin in fishes.
