Many ectotherms modify their phenotype seasonally as a response to variation in abiotic factors. Given the potential of seasonal acclimation to reduce the impact of climate change on the dynamics of ectotherm populations, the adaptive evolution of this reversible plasticity has received much attention. Nevertheless, the key assumption of selection on the magnitude of seasonal acclimation, consistent among‐individual variation (repeatability), remains unexplored. Leer más.
