Evolutionary quantitative genetics research group
Groupe d’étude de génétique quantitative évolutive

Do species have the ability to adapt ? Our research seeks to understand how the evolutionary history of species, their interaction with environmental conditions and their biotic interactions shape their ability to adapt. We are particularly interested in identifying factors that limit or improve species potential to respond to selection.

Est-ce que les espèces ont la capacité de s’adapter à de nouvelles contraintes environnementales ? Nos recherches testent l’impact de l’histoire évolutive des populations, de leurs interactions avec d’autres espèces et avec leur environnement abiotique sur leur potentiel adaptatif. Nous sommes particulièrement intéressés par le fait d’identifier les facteurs qui limitent ou à l’inverse augmentent la capacité des espèces à répondre à la sélection.
