Beyond buying time: The role of plasticity in phenotypic adaptation to rapid environmental change

Fox, Rebecca; Donelson, Jennifer M.; Schunter, Celia; Ravasi, Timothy; Gaitan-Espitia, Juan D.


How populations and species respond to modified environmental conditions is critical to their persistence both now and into the future, particularly given the increasing pace of environmental change. The process of adaptation to novel environmental conditions can occur via two mechanisms: (1) the expression of phenotypic plasticity (the ability of one genotype to express varying phenotypes when exposed to different environmental conditions), and (2) evolution via selection for particular...[Show more]
