Modes of adaptation

Main applications:
  • Which mode of adaptation (e.g. physiological response versus evolutionary tracking) is favoured in different types of environment?
  • How does the mode of adaptation affect the speed and outcome of adaptive processes?
  • How does the mode of adaptation affect the adaptive capacity of a system, that is, the ability of a system to cope with stressful conditions or environmental change?
Key aspects studied:

Developmental, phenotypic and behavioural plasticity, bet-hedging, epigenetic inheritance, maternal effects, social learning, environmental engineering, evolutionary tracking.
