SESSION TUTORIAL: BRIDGING THE ECO-EVOLUTIONARY GAP: PLASTIC AND ADAPTIVE RESPONSES TO CLIMATE CHANGE
While species can respond to climate change through both phenotypic plasticity and microevolutionary adaptations, much research to date has focused on either one or the other (plastic vs. adaptive). As an introduction to our session, we will review past efforts in explaining species-environment interactions through these two methods covering a range of trophic levels as well as time and space. In addition, we will present motivation and strategic goals for joining these two ideas (plastic and adaptive) in the development of more complete and predictive modelling tools for species in a changing climate. This tutorial will act as a foundation for both the state-of-the-science research that will be presented in the session, as well as discussions aimed at crafting a strategic path forward, combining strengths across tools, study species and disciplines.
