Bonnet, Timothee; Morrissey, Michael B.; Morris, Alison; Morris, Sean; Clutton-Brock, Tim H; Pemberton, Josephine M; Kruuk, Loeske

Description

Changing environmental conditions cause changes in the distributions of phenotypic traits in natural populations. However, determining the mechanisms responsible for these changes—and, in particular, the relative contributions of phenotypic plasticity versus evolutionary responses—is difficult. To our knowledge, no study has yet reported evidence that evolutionary change underlies the most widely reported phenotypic response to climate change: the advancement of breeding times. In a wild...[Show more]
