Masato Yamamichi (The University of Queensland): How does rapid evolution promote species coexistence?

4 May 2021 @ 6:00 - 7:00 PDT

Note: The event takes place 3 hours earlier than usual, because of the location of our lecturer. He will speak at midnight, local time, even in this way.

Previous studies have revealed that microevolution (i.e., temporal changes in allele frequencies) is pervasive in the wild and may be an important factor for understanding various ecological dynamics. Here, I show how rapid evolution can promote species coexistence via density-dependent sexual and social selection (intraspecific adaptation load: Yamamichi et al. 2020 Trends Ecol. Evol.) and resource-dependent adaptive foraging in limit cycles (relative nonlinearity: Yamamichi & Letten 2021 Ecol. Lett.). Then I will discuss the potential synthesis of theories on species coexistence and eco-evolutionary dynamics.
