The vast diversity of life on earth is the result of evolutionary processes that acted for billions of years. Consequently, it is often assumed that evolution requires long periods of time. The research programme will reveal insights about possible consequences of human-induced global change for future perspectives of biodiversity and the adaptive potential of natural and cultivated species. Research projects in this programme have a strong conceptual foundation in population genetics, ecological theory or evolutionary biology, to investigate the relationship of phenotypic and genetic evolution.
Each research project in the Priority Programme will belong to at least one of the following four thematic groups:
