PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Investigating the genetic architecture of thermal acclimation of leaf energy metabolism using GWAS

Climate variability is predicted to increase with climate change and the ability to acclimate to environmental perturbations and extremes has been widely described as having an adaptive benefit resulting in increased fitness. However, whether this is true is largely untested. This project will investigate the relationship between energy balance, thermal acclimation and fitness.
