Evolutionary constraints on adaptive evolution during range expansion in an invasive plant.

Abstract

Biological invasions may expose populations to strong selection for local adaptation along geographical gradients in climate. However, evolution during contemporary timescales can be constrained by low standing genetic variation and genetic correlations among life-history traits. We examined limits to local adaptation associated with northern migration of… (More)
