Table 2 Response functions and relation to susceptibility or resistance

  1. Summarized response types of susceptible (Atlantic and chum) and resistant (pink salmon) separated by evidence of a general response (Atlantic and/or chum and pink), a susceptible response (Atlantic and/or chum and not pink) or a resistant response (pink and not Atlantic or chum). Functions are also identified as being present as a systemic response or local response.
