Testing how populations are locally adapted and predicting their response to their future environment is of key importance in view of climate change. Landscape genomics is a powerful approach to investigate genes and environmental factors involved in local adaptation. In a pooled amplicon sequencing approach of 94 genes in 71 populations, we tested whether >3500 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the three most common oak species in Switzerland (Quercus petraea, Q. pubescens, Q. robur… Expand
Using gradient Forest to predict climate response and adaptation in Cork oak
TLDR
Using landscape genomics, a weak population structure and ecological adaptation is uncovered along an east–west climatic gradient across the Mediterranean region and a preliminary assessment towards a potential management strategy for the conservation of cork oak in the Mediterranean Basin is provided. Expand
New insights on adaptation and population structure of cork oak using genotyping by sequencing
TLDR
Results reveal an essentially unstructured species, where a balance between gene flow and local adaptation keeps the species’ gene pool somewhat homogeneous across its distribution, but at the same time allows variation clines for the individuals to cope with local conditions. Expand
Landscape genomics provides evidence of climate‐associated genetic variation in Mexican populations of Quercus rugosa
TLDR
It was found that spatial patterns of genetic variation were most strongly associated with precipitation seasonality and geographic distance, and a nonlinear multivariate model, Gradient Forests, was deployed to map turnover in allele frequencies along environmental gradients and predict areas most sensitive to climate change. Expand
New insights into adaptation and population structure of cork oak using genotyping by sequencing
TLDR
"Risk of Non-Adaptedness" (RONA) analyses suggest that for the considered variables and most sampled locations, the cork oak should not require large shifts in allele frequencies to survive the predicted climatic changes. Expand
Genomic signatures of natural selection at phenology-related genes in a widely distributed tree species Fagus sylvatica L
TLDR
Environmental conditions play important roles as drivers of genetic diversity of phenology-related genes that could influence local adaptation in European beech, and selection pressures may differ across spatial scales. Expand
Contrasted patterns of local adaptation to climate change across the range of an evergreen oak, Quercus aquifolioides
TLDR
It is suggested that different within‐species adaptation processes occur in species occurring in heterogeneous environments, and risk of nonadaptedness (RONA) analyses suggested HDM‐WSP lineage will have a better capacity to adapt in the predicted future climate compared with the Tibet lineage. Expand
Genome‐wide signatures of environmental adaptation in European aspen (Populus tremula) under current and future climate conditions
TLDR
Local adaptation to current climate in European aspen is assessed by using environmental association analyses to identify genetic variants associated with two representative climate variables describing current day variation in temperature and precipitation and it is demonstrated that southern populations harbour genetic variation that likely would be adaptive further north under both climate change scenarios. Expand
Evidence of genomic adaptation to climate in Eucalyptus microcarpa: Implications for adaptive potential to projected climate change
TLDR
The results reinforce the importance of standing genetic variation at the geographic level for maintaining species’ evolutionary potential and predict adaptation under projected changes in climate will include a suite of shifts in allele frequencies. Expand
Landscape genomics of Quercus lobata reveals genes involved in local climate adaptation at multiple spatial scales
TLDR
The results offer robust evidence for novel candidate genes for local climate adaptation at multiple spatial scales and suggests nonlinear association of candidate SNPs and environmental variables. Expand
Combined genotype and phenotype analyses reveal patterns of genomic adaptation to local environments in the subtropical oak Quercus acutissima
TLDR
The hypothesis of local adaptation of this long‐lived oak tree of subtropical China is validated, and environment was found to have a significant and stronger impact on the non‐neutral than the neutral SNPs, and also significantly associated with the phenotypic differentiation, suggesting that, apart from the geography, environment had played a role in determining non‐ neutral and phenotypesic variation.

TLDR
Adaptation to regional climate in the drought‐sensitive tree species Alnus glutinosa (Black alder), using a complementary approach that integrates genomic, phenotypic and landscape data, supports the notion that high gene exchange combined with strong environmental selection promotes adaptation to environmental cues.

Genome-environment association study suggests local adaptation to climate at the regional scale in Fagus sylvatica.
TLDR
Genomic divergence and the lack of large-scale neutral genetic patterns suggest that gene flow allows the spread of advantageous alleles in adaptive genes in species occurring in heterogeneous environments, which might reduce their regional extinction risk under CC. Expand
Imprints of Natural Selection Along Environmental Gradients in Phenology-Related Genes of Quercus petraea
TLDR
Evidence for convergent selection (similar for gradients) and clinal variation for a few genes is obtained, suggesting that comparisons between parallel gradients could be used to screen for major candidate genes responding to natural selection in trees. Expand

It is revealed that the ability of pedunculate oak to maintain glycolysis and fermentation under hypoxic conditions may help explain its tolerance to waterlogging. Expand

The high levels of gene flow in eight stands of white oak suggest that geographically remote oak stands are unlikely to be genetically isolated, questioning the static definition of gene reserves and seed stands. Expand

Nucleotide diversity was assessed within nine candidate genes for the time of bud burst in nine sessile oak populations distributed in central and northern Europe and no outlier single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) was found among the total of 125 SNPs. Expand

Nucleotide diversity was assessed within nine candidate genes (CGs) for the time of bud burst in nine sessile oak populations distributed in central and northern Europe and no outlier single-nucleotide polymorphism departing from neutral expectation was found. Expand

Although there was no evidence for natural selection due to adaptation in stands of Q. robur, it was demonstrated that age had a significant effect on their genetic variation and that stands established after the end of the Second World War had higher genetic diversity. Expand
