Geography, environmental gradients and anthropogenic forces affect the pattern and distribution of genetic diversity of populations. Hirohisa Kishino and I have long studied the effectiveness of Japan marine stock enhancement programs on the basis of survey sampling and population genetics methodologies. Current interests include: 1) evaluating genetic effects of marine stock enhancement, 2) developing methods for estimating population structure in high gene flow species, and 3) for detecting genomic selection for environmantal adaptation.
