Forecasting climate change response in an alpine specialist songbird reveals the importance of considering novel climate

Matthew DeSaix, Kristen Ruegg, Erika Zavaleta, Luke George & Garth Spellman
Species persistence in the face of climate change depends on both ecological and evolutionary factors. Here, we integrate ecological and whole-genome sequencing data to describe how populations of an alpine specialist, the Brown-capped Rosy-Finch (Leucosticte australis) may be impacted by climate change. We sampled 116 Brown-capped Rosy-Finches from 11 sampling locations across the breeding range. Using 429,442 genetic markers from whole-genome sequencing, we described population genetic structure and identified a subset of 436 genomic variants...
