Genetic and functional variation across regional and local scales is associated with climate in a foundational prairie grass

Ava Hoffman, Julie A. Bushey, Troy W. Ocheltree & Melinda D. Smith
Global change forecasts in ecosystems require knowledge of within species diversity, particularly of dominant species within communities. We assessed site-level diversity and capacity for adaptation of the dominant species of the shortgrass steppe biome of the Central US, Bouteloua gracilis. We quantified genetic diversity from 17 sites across regional scales, north-south from New Mexico to South Dakota, and local scales in Northern Colorado. We also quantified phenotype and plasticity within and among sites and determined...
