Climate change is shifting the phenology of many species throughout the world. While the interspecific consequences of these phenological shifts have been well documented, the intraspecific shifts and their resultant evolutionary consequences remain relatively unexplored. Here, we present a conceptual framework and overview of how phenological shifts within species can drive evolutionary change. We suggest that because the impacts of climate change are likely to vary across the range of a… CONTINUE READING
