...Cécile Le Lann; Joan van Baaren; Bertanne Visser ABSTRACT The Earth's climate is changing at a rapid pace. To survive in increasingly fluctuating and unpredictable environments, species can either migrate or evolve through rapid local adaptation, plasticity and/or bet-hedging. For small ectotherm...
