Experimental evolution on heat tolerance and thermal performance curves under contrasting thermal selection in Drosophila subobscura

Andres Mesas, Angélica Jaramillo & Luis Castañeda
Ectotherms can respond to global warming via evolutionary change of their upper thermal limits (CTmax). Thus, the estimation of CTmax and its evolutionary potential is crucial to determine their vulnerability to global warming. However, CTmax estimations depend on the thermal stress intensity, and it is not completely clear whether its evolutionary capacity can be affected. Here, we performed an artificial selection experiment to increase heat tolerance using fast- and slow-ramping selection protocols in Drosophila subobscura....
