Adaptation, Plasticity, and Extinction in a Changing Environment: Towards a Predictive Theory
AbstractA simple evolutionary model is used to understand the critical rate of environmental change beyond which a population must decline and go extinct. The model is used to highlight the major determinants of extinction risk in a changing environment, and identify research needs for improved predictions based on projected changes in environmental variables.
