Evolutionary ecology at the extremes of species’ ranges

  title={Evolutionary ecology at the extremes of species’ ranges},
  author={David Cameron Hardie and Jeffrey A Hutchings},
The nature of species at the extremes of their ranges impinges fundamentally on diverse biological issues, including species’ range dynamics, population variability, speciation and conservation biology. We review the literature concerning genetic and ecological variation at species’ range edges, and discuss historical and contemporary forces that may generate observed trends, as well as their current and future implications. We discuss literature which shows how environmental, ecological and… CONTINUE READING
