Ecological epigenetics is gaining importance within the field of Molecular Ecology, because of its novel evolutionary implications. Linking population ecology to the variation in epigenetic profiles can help explain the effect of environmental conditions on phenotypic differences among populations. While epigenetic changes have largely been investigated through the examination of DNA methylation under laboratory conditions, there is a limited understanding of the extent of DNA methylation… CONTINUE READING
