Plasticity and Evolution in Urban Ecosystems

Urban LTERs present an opportunity to study eco-evolutionary dynamics in the face of anthropogenic change, including shifts in temperature, toxins, nutrition, and biotic interactions. How does plasticity and genetic variation interact to shape the ecology of communities and the evolution of populations in human-dominated environments? A May workshop organized by the CAP LTER is focusing on many of these issues (https://seepworkshop.com/). The present workshop will summarize some of the emergent themes of these efforts, and facilitate discussions on how coordinated science could play out across LTERs, from urban to rural sites. What eco-evolutionary questions unite us? How can addressing such questions make human access to green spaces more equitable? We hope this workshop serves as a catalyst for collaborative research efforts across urban to rural gradients.
