Studies of evolutionary responses to accelerated environmental change can shed light on the capacity of organisms to adapt to human disturbances. Conservation and management strategies and policies for threatened species and ecosystems should be informed by evolutionary and genetic information whenever possible. Project Baseline is a collabortive project funded by the National Science Foundation.
