Earlier spring reduces potential for gene flow via reduced flowering synchrony across an elevational gradient

Sébastien Rivest, Geneviève Lajoie, David Watts & Mark Vellend
Premise: One of the best-documented ecological responses to climate warming involves temporal shifts of phenological events. However, we lack an understanding of how phenological responses to climate change vary among populations of the same species. Such variability has the potential to affect flowering synchrony among populations and hence the potential for gene flow. Methods: To test if an earlier start of the growing season affects the potential for gene flow among populations, we quantified the...
