Evolutionary Responses to Warming

McGaughran, Angela; Laver, Rebecca; Fraser, Ceridwen

Description

Much of the impact of increasing temperature on biodiversity is predicted to be widespread and adverse; however, rapid evolutionary responses to a warming world may be beneficial for some species. Genomic research is revealing that some species are capable of rapid adaptive evolution in the face of environmental change associated with rising temperatures, providing mechanistic insights into how temperature might accelerate evolution in the Anthropocene. The main mechanisms by...[Show more]
