Seagrass meadows provide important ecosystem services and are critical to the survival of the associated invertebrate community. However, they are threatened worldwide by human-driven environmental change. Understanding the potential for adaptation of these plants is critical to assess not only their ability to persist under future global change scenarios, but also to assess the persistence of the associated communities. Here, we screened wild population of Posidonia oceanica, an endemic long lived marine plant in the...
