Evolutionary Genomic Mechanisms of Adaptation to Novel and Changing Salinity
Monday, November 23, 2020
Salinity is a major environmental driver of aquatic species distributions. In response to extreme environmental change, evolutionary responses are often critical for avoiding extinction. I will discuss my recent work using genomic studies of wild and laboratory populations of an important planktonic crustacean to investigate genomic factors that could facilitate rapid evolutionary responses to global changes in salinity.
