By investigating how past selection has affected allele frequencies across space, genomic tools are providing new insights into adaptive evolutionary processes.
Now researchers are considering how this genomic information can be used to predict the future vulnerability of species under climate change.
Genomic vulnerability assessments show promise, but challenges remain.
