Predicting evolutionary responses to climate change in the sea.
An increasing number of short-term experimental studies show significant effects of projected ocean warming and ocean acidification on the performance on marine organisms. Yet, it remains unclear ifExpand
Phenotype-environment mismatches reduce connectivity in the sea.
The connectivity of marine populations is often surprisingly lower than predicted by the dispersal capabilities of propagules alone. Estimates of connectivity, moreover, do not always scale withExpand
Revealing hidden evolutionary capacity to cope with global change.
The extent to which global change will impact the long-term persistence of species depends on their evolutionary potential to adapt to future conditions. While the number of studies that estimate theExpand
Transgenerational plasticity and environmental stress: do paternal effects act as a conduit or a buffer?
Summary For most organisms, early life-history stages are the most sensitive to environmental stress and so transgenerational phenotypic plasticity, whereby the parental environment and offspringExpand
FITNESS CONSEQUENCES OF LARVAL TRAITS PERSIST ACROSS THE METAMORPHIC BOUNDARY
Metamorphosis is thought to provide an adaptive decoupling between traits specialized for each life‐history stage in species with complex life cycles. However, an increasing number of studies areExpand
The adaptive value of functional and life-history traits across fertility treatments in an annual plant.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Plant functional traits are assumed to be adaptive. As selection acts on individuals and not on traits, interpreting the adaptive value of a trait not may be straightforward. ForExpand
Multivariate selection shapes environment-dependent variation in the clonal morphology of a red seaweed
Within-individual strategies of variation (e.g., phenotypic plasticity) are particularly relevant to modular organisms, in which ramets of the same genetic individual may encounter diverseExpand
Invasive ecosystem engineer selects for different phenotypes of an associated native species.
Invasive habitat-forming ecosystem engineers modify the abiotic environment and thus represent a major perturbation to many ecosystems. Because native species often persist in these invaded habitatsExpand
THE MAINTENANCE OF SPERM VARIABILITY: CONTEXT‐DEPENDENT SELECTION ON SPERM MORPHOLOGY IN A BROADCAST SPAWNING INVERTEBRATE
Why are sperm so variable despite having a singular, critical function and an intimate relationship with fitness? A key to understanding the evolution of sperm morphology is identifying which traitsExpand

Offspring size is one of the most important life‐history traits with consequences for both the ecology and evolution of most organisms. Surprisingly, formal estimates of selection on offspring sizeExpand
