Data from: Natal habitat preference induction in large mammals – Like mother, like child?

Benjamin Larue, Steeve D. Côté, Martin-Hugues St-Laurent, Christian Dussault & Mathieu Leblond
Habitat selection has received considerable attention from ecologists during the last decades, yet the underlying forces shaping individual differences in habitat selection are poorly documented. Some of these differences could be explained by the early experience of individuals in their natal habitat. By selecting habitat attributes like those encountered early in life, individuals could improve resource acquisition, survival, and ultimately fitness. This behaviour, known as natal habitat preference induction (NHPI), could be particularly common in...

Data from: Local adaptation of trees at the range margins impact range shifts in the face of climate change

Kevin A. Solarik, Christian Messier, Rock Ouimet, Yves Bergeron & Dominique Gravel
The ability of tree species to track their climatic niche at rates comparable to global warming is concerning, particularly if they are constrained by local adaptation. If a species is locally adapted at its range margin it could be beneficial for range expansion as it ensures that the genotypes colonizing new areas are the fittest because environmental conditions are more similar to the current ones. In trees, local adaptation can slow range expansion when climate...
