In the Arctic, extremely steep environmental gradients are frequent on a microtopographical scale and ecotypic differentiation has been demonstrated over such short distances for alpine timothy (Phleum alpinum ), Carex aquatilis , mountain avens , and purple saxifrage , all widely distributed plant species in the Arctic.
On a microtopographical scale, extremely steep environmental gradients are frequent and ecotypic differentiation has been demonstrated over short distances for several widespread species.
Genetic diversity and ecotypic differentiation in arctic and alpine populations of Polygonum viviparum.
Large variation within populations, however, increases possibilities for ecotypic differentiation.
Such data suggest that the effects of climate change on plant – herbivore interactions are likely to be highly variable, species-specific, and also dependent on the nature of the change and on ecotypic or subspecific differences, perhaps related to local evolution in the presence or absence of herbivores.
