Crop adaptation to climate change: genetic and evolutionary processes involved in phenological responses

Understanding the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms involved in adaptation to spatial or temporal heterogeneity under selection pressure is an important issue in evolutionary and conservation biology. Due to the current context of climate change, it has become crucial for both crop plants and their wild relatives.

The Adaptation to climate change project explore the genetics and evolutionary mechanisms involved in local adaptation to spatial and temporal heterogeneity of climatic conditions.
