How does developmental plasticity shape adaptation to environmental change?

Project: Research

Project Description

This project aims to address how animals will adapt to environmental change by examining a process largely ignored in current studies: how the environment alters animal development. This project expects to generate new knowledge in the area the genetics of adaptation using an innovative approach to determine how genetic variation, environmental conditions, and development interact to shape adaptation to changing environments. Expected outcomes of this project include enhancing predictions of how species respond to climate change and building capacity for international collaborations. This should provide significant benefits, such as informing strategies to manage biodiversity and evaluate species vulnerability to altered environments.
