Measuring phenotypes in fluctuating environments

Tim Burton, Hanna-Kaisa Lakka & Sigurd Einum
1. Despite considerable theoretical interest in how the evolution of phenotypic plasticity should be shaped by environmental variability and stochasticity, how individuals actually respond to these aspects of the environment within their own lifetimes remains unclear. 2. We propose that this understanding has been hampered by experimental approaches that expose organisms to fluctuating environments (typically treatments where fluctuations in the environment are cyclical versus erratic) for a pre-determined duration, while ensuring that the mean environment...
