New video on rain forest evolution – and why we need the field of evolutionary biology to understand (and possibly change) their fate. Current threat by humans is increasing – but we don’t know how species will adapt, move, evolve. To have a better idea, we need to know which processes have influenced their evolution in the past. Using (phylo)genetics, ecology, functional traits and species distribution modelling we may better understand this.
If selected, this video will be shown at the Evolution meeting in Austin, Texas, this June – I won’t be there, but please vote if you are! Thanks!
