  • Rapid increases in global temperature are likely to impose strong directional selection on many plant populations, which must therefore adapt if they are to survive. Within populations, microgeographic genetic differentiation of individuals with respect to climate suggests that some populations may adapt to changing temperatures in the short‐term through rapid changes in gene frequency. We used a genome scan to identify temperature‐related adaptive differentiation of individuals of the tree… CONTINUE READING
