Climate mediates geographic patterns in eco-evolutionary plant-soil dynamics
Dr. Ian Ware, Post-doctoral research ecologist with the United States Forest Service
Unifying ecosystem ecology and evolutionary biology promises a more complete understanding of the processes that link different levels of biological organization across space and time. Feedbacks across levels of organization link theory associated with eco-evolutionary dynamics, niche construction, and the geographic mosaic theory of co-evolution. The work I will present extends the integration of eco-evolutionary dynamics by
1) highlighting our current knowledge of eco-evolutionary feedbacks in ecosystems, to provide an improved synthesis and foundation for understanding the interplay between biodiversity and ecosystem function through an eco-evolutionary lens;
2) examining the hypothesis that climate-driven evolution of plant traits will have downstream consequences for associated soil microbiomes and ecosystem function across the landscape; and
3) examining genetically-based plant-soil feedback at the landscape scale to understand how variation in climate, soil microbiome function, and tree-driven soil conditioning interact to influence phenotypic variation in bud break phenology.
Cumulatively, the findings I will present provide evidence that understanding the natural variation in genetic components of both above- and below ground portions of the plant-soil linkage are important for predicting patterns of divergence in ecosystem function in a warmer world.
All are welcome!
