J Exp Biol (2024) 227 (Suppl_1): jeb246009.
Published: 7 March 2024
.... Future studies should consider the genetic structure of populations when inferring the role of epigenetic diversity in local adaptation in wild populations. Furthermore, there is a need to identify the factors that sustain the links between genetic and epigenetic diversity to improve our understanding...

...Kamron Kayhani; Felipe S. Barreto ABSTRACT Determining the mechanisms by which organisms evolve thermal tolerance is crucial to predicting how populations may respond to changes in local temperature regimes. Although evidence of relationships between mitochondrial background and thermal adaptation...

... and immune function to name a few. Numerous experimental studies have incorporated NCEs in investigating predator–prey dynamics in the past decade. Interestingly, predator–prey systems can also be used as experimental models to answer physiology, cognition and adaptability questions. In this Commentary, I...

...Natalie E. van Dis; Maurijn van der Zee; Roelof A. Hut; Bregje Wertheim; Marcel E. Visser ABSTRACT Climate change is rapidly altering the environment and many species will need to genetically adapt their seasonal timing to keep up with these changes. Insect development rate is largely influenced...

... at this threshold; their performance can depend on additional factors. In humans and zebra finches, discrimination thresholds for colour stimuli depend on background colour, and thus the adaptive state of the visual system. We have tested how well chickens can discriminate shades of orange or green presented...
