Description
In the face of global environmental change, the need for understanding the limits of ecological niches and constraints on adaptation is becoming increasingly pressing. This question is often formulated with respect to the abiotic, physical environment, which determines the fundamental niche of a species, as measured by its environmental tolerance curve. Yet, both within- and between-species ecological interactions are crucial not only to relate this fundamental niche to the realized niche in the field, but also to understand evolution of the abiotic niche itself. Indeed, tolerance of abiotic stress and ecological interactions involve functional traits that are l...
