" Genomic Basis and Prediction of Climate Adaptation "
As climate change threatens global biodiversity, it has become increasingly clear that evolutionary processes will play an important role in species persistence through the next century. My lab uses genomic tools, paired with ecological experiments and large-scale climate data to understand the genomic mechanisms underlying adaptation to different climate regimes, with the ultimate goal of integrating evolution into predictive frameworks. In this talk, I will discuss past and ongoing work addressing patterns and predictions for climate adaptation in marine foundation species.
