Scales of adaptation along environmental gradients in keystone intertidal organisms under different gene flow scenarios

This project will combine experimental methods and state-of-the-art molecular techniques to test if populations that are more connected by gene flow exhibit less genetic differentiation attributable to local adaptation, compared to more isolated populations. We expect to obtain novel insights into the processes by which species with broad geographical ranges can adapt to local environmental conditions, despite the homogenizing effects of gene flow.
