Abstract: How species respond to changes in their environment is a fundamental question in biology. This has become an increasingly important issue as anthropogenic effects of climate change and biological invasions have major impacts on marine ecosystems worldwide. In this thesis I investigated the role of salinity tolerance from an evolutionary perspective, using a wide range of techniques, spanning from population genetics and common-garden experiments to characterizing potential genes involved in osmo... more
