Peripheral isolates as sources of adaptive diversity under climate change

Macdonald, Stewart L.; Llewelyn, J.; Moritz, Craig; Phillips, Ben L.

Description

As climate change progresses, there is increasing focus on the possibility of using targeted gene flow (TGF, the movement of pre-adapted individuals into declining populations) as a management tool. Targeted gene flow is a relatively cheap, low-risk management option, and will almost certainly come into increased use over the coming decades. Before such action can be taken, however, we need to know where to find pre-adapted individuals. We argue that, for many species, the obvious place to look...[Show more]
