ADAPTIVE: how marine invertebrates will adapt to future environmental changes?

2018 – PRESENT Understanding the underlaying mechanisms of regional/local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity of marine organisms, and how these mechanisms generate functional variability and buffering traits to face environmental gradients is not only important to interpret current biogeographical patterns but also to make predictions about the future effects of environmental shifts and climate change, to develop proper management and conservation strategies, and finally to mitigate further impacts of anthropogenic activities. The new project lead by Dr. Rocío Pérez-Portela and Dr. José Carlos Hernández will try, in the coming years, to disentangle the genetic and ecological mechanisms behind the adaptation of marine invertebrates to their changing environment.
