D7 Molecular Biogeography in Face of Climate Change
Chair: Thomas Schmitt, Carl Beierkuhnlein, Walter Durka
Wednesday, 09:30-10:30, H16, NWII
Phylogeographic approaches and population demography are fields of rapid scientific development. Molecular methods allow identifying the functional background between spatial and temporal patterns in the distribution and dispersal of species and populations. This session will integrate molecular biogeographical research at various levels of scale ranging from local within-population interactions over regional metapopulations to large-scale gradients and historical developments. There is space for methodological papers as well as for the focus on certain taxonomic groups. Applied approaches may address the analysis of genetic heterogeneity of and phenotypic plasticity of populations against climatic extremes or analyse the routes of post-glacial dispersal. The identification of provenances of species that are adapted to certain climatic conditions will become of increasing importance in face of climatic changes. Here, the focus will be on natural populations of long-lived species that can not disperse naturally within short time-periods.
