Global urban environmental change drives adaptation in white clover
MetadataShow full item record
<jats:p>Urbanization transforms environments in ways that alter biological evolution. We examined whether urban environmental change drives parallel evolution by sampling 110,019 white clover plants from 6169 populations in 160 cities globally. Plants were assayed for a Mendelian antiherbivore defense that also affects tolerance to abiotic stressors. Urban-rural gradients were associated with the evolution of clines in defense in 47% of cities throughout the world. Variation in the strength of clines was explained by environmental changes in drought stress and vegetation cover that varied among cities. Sequencing 2074 genomes from 26 cities revealed that the evolution of urban-rural clines was best explained by adaptive evolution, but the degree of parallel adaptation varied among cities. Our results demonstrate that urbanization leads to adaptation at a global scale.</jats:p>

How can we define the Celtic Seas: the role of stakeholders in the South West? Johnson, Lisa Marie (2014)Current legislation requires the UK to achieve Good Environmental Status by the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and it is generally recognised that stakeholders will have a vital role in achieving this goal.
