Plant eco-evolutionary responses to climate change: Emerging directions

Contemporary climate change is exposing plant populations to novel combinations of
temperatures, drought stress, and other abiotic and biotic conditions. These changes are
rapidly disrupting the evolutionary dynamics of plants. Despite the multifactorial nature of
climate change, most studies typically manipulate only one climatic factor. In this opinion piece,
we seek to explore how climate change factors interact with each other and with biotic pressures
to alter evolutionary processes.
