Project description

Spatial variation plays a key role in eco-evolutionary responses to environmental change. The way in which local populations, communities and ecosystems react to environmental change may critically depend on the interaction between local and regional responses. We here conduct an integrated study of eco-evolutionary dynamics along strong gradients in anthropogenic disturbance, covering replicates of habitats along (semi)natural-rural-urban habitat gradients in Flanders.
