Sparse evidence for selection on phenotypic plasticity in response to temperature

Arnold, Pieter; Nicotra, Adrienne; Kruuk, Loeske


Phenotypic plasticity is frequently assumed to be an adaptive mechanism by which organisms cope with rapid changes in their environment, such as shifts in temperature regimes owing to climate change. However, despite this adaptive assumption, the nature of selection on plasticity within populations is still poorly documented. Here, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of estimates of selection on thermal plasticity. Although there is a large literature on thermal plasticity, we...[Show more]
