Predicting the dynamics of local adaptation in invasive species

  title={Predicting the dynamics of local adaptation in invasive species},
  author={Erin K. Espeland},
An invasive plant species may restrict its spread to only one type of habitat, or, after some time, may continue to spread into a different, often stressful, secondary, habitat. The question of whether evolution is required for an invasive species to spread from one habitat to another is currently hotly debated. In order for local adaptation to occur, genetic variation must be present within invasive populations. In this paper, I focus on the effect of habitat on the maintenance of genetic… CONTINUE READING
