Section 1: Overview

 

-Antoine Kremer (France, Evoltree):

Evidence for a genetic basis for local and range-wide phenotypic variation in key functional traits in European trees.

 

-Jason Holliday (USA):

Genomics of adaptation to local climate in a widespread conifer.

-John Stinchcombe (Canada):

Importance of functional tradeoffs in controlling genetic adaptation to environment.

 

-Ophelie Ronce (France):

How does evolution affect extinction and species range dynamics in the context of global change?

 

 

Section 2: Observation networks

Integrating functional genetics into observation networks: what to measure,

how to measure and how to integrate with other biodiversity and ecosystem observations.

 

-TBA

Overview of GEO-BON and AP-BON

 

-Antoine Kremer (France, Evoltree):

Observation networks for trees in the context of the EU-Evoltree program.

 
-Tet Yahara (Japan, DIVERISITAS):

Section 4: Models

Modeling species response to climate change: is "rapid evolution" in response to climate change likely to occur and,

if so, what are the potential consequences?
