Local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity in alpine plants.
I am particularly interested in the relationship between environmental variation and species evolutionary strategies and responses. In this PhD thesis we try to figure out how the granularity of environmental variation is linked to survival strategies of alpine plants. More precisely, we look at phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation as two fundamental evolutionary strategies and how they are linked to coarse-grained and fine-grained environmental variability.
