Heritability of climate-relevant traits in a rainforest skink

de Mello Martins, Felipe; Kruuk, Loeske; Llewelyn, J.; Moritz, Craig; Phillips, B.L.


There is justified concern about the impact of global warming on the persistence of tropical ectotherms. There is also growing evidence for strong selection on climate-relevant physiological traits. Understanding the evolutionary potential of populations is especially important for low dispersal organisms in isolated populations, because these populations have little choice but to adapt. Despite this, direct estimates of heritability and genetic correlations for physiological traits in...[Show more]
