Her master's research examined the demographic and life history responses of an overexploited bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) population to imposition of catch-and-release regulations.
Ms. Johnston joined the Evolution and Ecology Program in January 2007. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Humboldt University, Berlin, working under the framework of the ADAPTFISH project at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Berlin in collaboration with IIASA. The aim of ADAPTFISH is to study adaptations of freshwater fish resources to exploitation, the dynamics of anglers that utilize these resources, and the management practices of the institutions that control fish and angler interactions. Her research is focused on the ecological and evolutionary effects of size-selective harvest on freshwater recreational fish species.
