SPECIAL FEATURE: Understanding climate change response in the age of genomics

The June issue of Journal of Animal Ecology is out now and includes a Special feature, Understanding climate change response in the age of genomics.

As global temperatures continue to rise, there is a major threat to species and ecosystems worldwide. In order to develop conservation and mitigation strategies, an understanding of how animal populations respond to changing environments is crucial. This Special Feature highlights emerging genomics approaches and how they can help us develop this understanding of how species respond to climate change. Blog Associate Editor, Julie Koch Sheard had a chat with Guest Editors for the feature, Maren Wellenreuther and Zachary Fuller about the motivation behind it and some of the papers included.

The Editorial for Understanding climate change response in the age of genomics is free to read here. All papers in the feature are also free to read for a limited time in issue 91:06.
