Altered eco-evolutionary feedbacks in a future climate

Project description

Predicting the consequences of climate change on biodiversity

There is a link between climate change and biodiversity. The distributions of species have shifted due to climate change. Current scenarios predict an accelerated erosion of biodiversity with climate change. However, uncertainties in these predictions remain large because the multiplicity of climate-change effects at all biological levels, from genes to ecosystems, and their interdependencies are still overlooked. In this context, the ERC-funded ECOFEED project will address the uncertainties. Specifically, the project will investigate climate-dependent eco-evolutionary feedbacks using a 6-year-long realistic warming experiment reproducing natural conditions, thus allowing for both evolutionary and ecological dynamics to occur under a predicted climate change scenario.
