The plant mating system and the evolution of resistance

Thu, Mar 4, 2021, 12:30 pm

The mating system, or who mates with whom, and how often, is a critical trait that influences the distribution of genetic variation among populations as well as fitness and the ability of populations to respond to selection. Although we know that the plant mating system is strongly influenced by environmental factors, we do not understand if and how the mating system may be shaped by anthropogenic forces. In this talk, I give a brief overview of the ongoing ecological genetics/genomics projects within the lab and focus on our attempts to understand how the mating system may evolve given regimes of strong human-mediated selection.
