A fundamental question in evolutionary biology is how organisms respond to new and changing environments. This question also has conservation implications in the face of human induced rapid environmental change, including invasive species, habitat loss, and climate change. In response to new or changing environments, populations may evolve genetic changes across generations, and individuals may also respond via phenotypic plasticity within a generation. We can use experimental methods and model systems to increase our understanding of the way that genes and the environment interact to shape ...
