"First, we need better estimates of adult survival, especially in the Atlantic and Southwest regions; t...

Duke study disputes idea that trees can 'relocate' quickly in response to climate change

...ead of analyzing fossil data, Clark did population modeling in concert with McLachlan, a post-doctoral researcher with expertise in molecular analysis, and with Manos, who has expertise in molecular systematics, to assess the situation from a genetics standpoint. They focused on variations in heritable geneti...
