Lay Summary (Französisch)

Lead
Ce projet examine les conséquences génétiques des changements d’aire de distribution des espèces. Plus spécifiquement, il propose de combiner des modèles génétiques et écologiques, ainsi qu’une approche empirique, pour déterminer si, et comment, la diversité génétique est préservée lorsqu’une espèce voit son aire de distribution se contracter. Il se focalise sur cinq espèces européennes adaptées au froid, dont la répartition est particulièrement influencée par le réchauffement climatique actuel.
Lay summary

Le réchauffement climatique actuel influence la répartition des espèces, entraînant un déplacement de leur aire de distribution vers de plus hautes altitudes et latitudes, au fur et à mesure que la température augmente. Ces changements de répartition impliquent une dynamique particulière au sein des populations, notamment au sein de celles qui sont en marge d’aire de distribution. Cependant, les processus peuvent être drastiquement différents, selon que l’on se réfère aux populations qui se trouvent au niveau du front d’expansion, ou celles qui se trouvent dans la zone en contraction. Pour la majorité des espèces de nos régions, et dans le contexte du réchauffement climatique actuel, l’expansion implique une dispersion des populations vers de plus hautes latitudes et altitudes, tandis que la contraction implique une extinction aux basses latitudes et altitudes. Les conséquences génétiques des processus d’expansion ont été étudiées d’un point de vue théorique et empirique chez différentes d’espèces. En revanche, les conséquences génétiques des processus de contraction ont reçu nettement moins d’attention de la part de la communauté scientifique, notamment car leur analyse empirique nécessite un accès direct au matériel génétique de populations aujourd'hui éteintes. Dans ce projet, nous combinons trois différents domaines de la biologie pour explorer en détails les processus en cours qui permettent à la variation génétique d’être conservée, ou non, pendant les événements de contractions d’aires de distribution. Ces domaines sont la modélisation génétique, la modélisation écologique, et la détermination empirique de la variation génétique présente et passée (cette dernière se faisant à l'aide d'ADN prélevé chez des organismes qui ont vécu dans le passé). Nous adoptons donc une approche multidisciplinaire, combinant des domaines de recherche indépendants qui ont, jusqu’à présent, produit une vision partielle des processus à l'œuvre.

Abstract

Present-day climate warming affects the distribution of many species, making them move towards higher latitudes and altitudes as temperature rises. This project addresses the question of how much genetic variation is retained in species during range contractions. As genetic variation is the raw material for natural selection, the question of its maintenance during range contractions and contribution to the long-term evolutionary potential of species is of great importance in biology. Despite its significance, however, this question has not been studied in a multidisciplinary approach, and independent research fields have only produced a very partial vision of the processes at work. Here we build bridges among disciplines and investigate the fate of genetic diversity during range contractions using empirical datasets of an unprecedented size. Changes in species ranges are not restricted to current climate change. In fact, they have occurred many times in the past, shaping a large part of today’s biodiversity. Because modelling suggests that different speeds of contraction have dissimilar effects on genetic diversity, we will investigate processes occurring at two time scales, decadal (short term) and millennial (long term). By focusing on species that are nowadays experiencing spatial reductions of their range compared to the past, we will have direct access to processes at work during range contractions. As cold-adapted species have been particularly affected by range contractions since the last ice age they are particularly suited to such analyses.Effects of decadal range contractions will be investigated in four species of insects (one butterfly, one dragonfly, and two bumblebees) in Great Britain and Finland, two regions where the north-south orientation of land masses induces one-dimensional contraction processes. In those species, museum collections have preserved specimens captured in the last decades within and outside the current species ranges. Therefore, natural history collections offer largely underexploited direct access to the genetic diversity of the past. Effects of millennial range contractions will be examined in the silver fir, for which macrofossils (mostly needles) are available in many locations within and outside the current distribution of the species at different time points since the last glacial maximum. They will also be investigated in the Swedish cornel, for which soil samples with plant DNA residuals were obtained. Ancient DNA will be gathered from fossils, with particular care taken during extractions that will be performed in association with a specialised French laboratory.After unravelling DNA variation in modern and past specimens using next-generation-sequencing technologies, we will combine ancient and historical DNA data with spatially-explicit population and environmental niche modelling, to test hypotheses of genetic diversity loss or maintenance during range contraction. This project will therefore link state-of-the-art models with empirical examination of genetic variation, providing for the first time a direct insight into the processes responsible for the genetic patterns retrieved at contraction boundaries. Last but not least, this proposal sets the foundations for the eventual establishment of an ancient DNA laboratory in Switzerland.
