Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Sympatric speciation and Genetic diversity. He combines subjects such as Allopatric speciation, Population genetics, Salmo, Genetic structure and Biological dispersal with his study of Ecology. Louis Bernatchez interconnects Fish migration and Allele frequency in the investigation of issues within Salmo.

His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Effective population size, Natural selection, Adaptation, Phylogeography and Gene flow. His studies in Sympatric speciation integrate themes in fields like Adaptive radiation, Coregonus, Ecotype and Coregonus clupeaformis. As part of one scientific family, Louis Bernatchez deals mainly with the area of Genetic diversity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Salvelinus, and often Microsatellite, Range and Arctic.

His most cited work include:

  • MHC studies in nonmodel vertebrates: what have we learned about natural selection in 15 years? (743 citations)
  • Comparative phylogeography of Nearctic and Palearctic fishes (740 citations)
  • Adaptive evolutionary conservation: towards a unified concept for defining conservation units. (740 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Zoology and Salvelinus. His specific area of interest is Ecology, where he studies Sympatric speciation. His Sympatric speciation study combines topics in areas such as Allopatric speciation, Natural selection, Ecological speciation, Reproductive isolation and Coregonus clupeaformis.

His research investigates the connection between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Genetic variation that intersect with problems in Heritability. Zoology is closely attributed to Mitochondrial DNA in his research. His Salvelinus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stocking and Introgression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (43.61%)
  • Evolutionary biology (29.07%)
  • Genetics (22.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (29.07%)
  • Genetic diversity (11.38%)
  • Local adaptation (9.11%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Louis Bernatchez focuses on Evolutionary biology, Genetic diversity, Local adaptation, Genome and Fishery. Louis Bernatchez has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Gene flow, Genetic variation, Demographic history, Adaptation and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Salvelinus and Reproductive success.

His work in Genome addresses issues such as Salmo, which are connected to fields such as CRISPR. His work in the fields of Fisheries management overlaps with other areas such as Stock. His study with Temperate climate involves better knowledge in Ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Going beyond SNPs: The role of structural genomic variants in adaptive evolution and species diversification (69 citations)
  • Aquatic Landscape Genomics and Environmental Effects on Genetic Variation (39 citations)
  • Chromosomal fusion and life history‐associated genomic variation contribute to within‐river local adaptation of Atlantic salmon (24 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Louis Bernatchez mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Genome, Local adaptation, Adaptation and Structural variation. The Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Lineage, Selection, Gene flow, Genetic variation and Haplotype. His Selection study deals with Allopatric speciation intersecting with Coregonus.

His research in Genome intersects with topics in Selective breeding, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Salmo and Candidate gene. His Adaptation research integrates issues from Directional selection, Ecotype, Temperate climate and Phenotypic plasticity. His Ecological speciation research focuses on subjects like Population genomics, which are linked to Ecology.
