Adaptive versus non‐adaptive phenotypic plasticity and the potential for contemporary adaptation in new environments
TLDR
It is concluded that adaptive plasticity that places populations close enough to a new phenotypic optimum for directional selection to act is the only Plasticity that predictably enhances fitness and is most likely to facilitate adaptive evolution on ecological time-scales in new environments. Expand
Harnessing genomics for delineating conservation units.
TLDR
A new framework to integrate data on neutral and adaptive markers to protect biodiversity is provided and it is proposed that the use of neutral versus adaptive markers should not be viewed as alternatives. Expand
Adaptive population divergence: markers, QTL and traits
TLDR
Molecular markers appear to be poor indicators of heritable variation in adaptive traits, but recent theoretical and simulation studies suggest that F st is a better predictor of the pattern of allelic differentiation at quantitative trait loci (QTLs) than is Q st in random mating populations, in which case allelic variation at QTLs might be better assessed by molecular markers.

''How Local Is Local?''—A Review of Practical and Conceptual Issues in the Genetics of Restoration
TLDR
This work focuses on genetic concerns arising from ongoing restoration efforts, where often little is known about ‘‘How local is local?’’ (i.e., the geographic or environmental scale over which plant species are adapted). Expand
Quantitative trait loci affecting differences in floral morphology between two species of monkeyflower (Mimulus).
TLDR
The genetic control of 12 morphological differences between the flowers of M. lewisii and M. cardinalis implies that either single genes of individually large effect or linked clusters of genes with a large cumulative effect can play a role in the evolution of reproductive isolation and speciation.

2b-RAD: a simple and flexible method for genome-wide genotyping
We describe 2b-RAD, a streamlined restriction site–associated DNA (RAD) genotyping method based on sequencing the uniform fragments produced by type IIB restriction endonucleases. Well-studiedExpand
Genetics of drought adaptation in Arabidopsis thaliana: I. Pleiotropy contributes to genetic correlations among ecological traits
TLDR
Strong evidence for pleiotropy is found using near‐isogenic lines of FRIGIDA and FLOWERING LOCUS C, cloned loci known to be responsible for natural variation in flowering time, to suggest the correlated evolution of δ13C and flowering time is explained in part by the fixation of pleiotropic alleles that alter both δ 13C and time to flowering.

PLASTICITY AND GENETIC DIVERSITY MAY ALLOW SALTCEDAR TO INVADE COLD CLIMATES IN NORTH AMERICA
TLDR
The data support a model in which both plasticity and adaptive evolution can contribute to the invasive potential of introduced species, by examining the degree of genetic differentiation within and among populations from the latitudinal extremes of its introduced range. Expand
Genomics and the challenging translation into conservation practice.
TLDR
Before the real-world conservation potential of genomic research can be realized, current infrastructures need to be modified, methods must mature, analytical pipelines need to been developed, and successful case studies must be disseminated to practitioners. Expand
Physiological Genomics of Response to Soil Drying in Diverse Arabidopsis Accessions[W][OA]
