AdAptA project
Local adaptation in marginal
alpine populations: an integrated perspective
Carlos Lara-Romero
ETH. April 2015.
• Alpine environments are highly vulnerable to global warming
•Main response of alpine plants  Upward range shifts trancking their current climatic niche
Theoretical background
Paulí et al 2012 Science, Marris 2007 Nature, Dullinger et al 2012 Glob. Ecol Biogeogr, Lara-Romero et al 2014 Plos One
• Alpine environments are highly vulnerable to global warming
•Main response of alpine plants  Upward range shifts trancking their current climatic niche
•Mediterranean alpine plants  Upward migration is not an option (The scalator effect)
Theoretical background
Paulí et al 2012 Science, Marris 2007 Nature, Dullinger et al 2012 Glob. Ecol Biogeogr, Lara-Romero et al 2014 Plos One
• Alpine environments are highly vulnerable to global warming
•Main response of alpine plants  Upward range shifts trancking their current climatic niche
•Mediterranean alpine plants  Upward migration is not an option (The scalator effect)
• Adaptation and phenotypic plasticity are the main response against new environmental
conditions
Theoretical background

Objectives & Study species
OBJETIVES
[1] To assess the main limitations on reproductive performance of Mediterranean alpine
plants and to test whether local adaptation at small spatial scales has a significant effect on their
fitness.

Editor's Notes

  1. In my talk I will give a breif descripton of the project I am working on and I will also show you some of my work during my stay at ETH with a particularly relevant question My work at ETH is part of ADAPTA project which aims to provide an integrated perspective on the local adaptation in margnal alpine populations
  2. First of all let me provides you some of the theoretical background behind the project. High-mountain plant species are among the organisms considered to be especially vulnerable to global warming The main response of alpine plants to the new climatic conditions appears to be upward range shifts tracking their current climatic niche.
  3. The critical point is that upward migration is not an option for mediterranean alpine platns because species already inhabit summit areas. And the dispersal limitations of these species constrains latitudinal migration.
  4. THIS MEANS THAT phenotypic plasticity and/or genetic change through an adaptive evolutionary process have to be the main response…
  5. Taking S. ciliata as study species the project aimed to… The species is a mediterranean alpine specialist distributed across the north mediterranean basin (beisin)
  6. Our study relies(relais) in populations of central Spain, which have a common evolutionary history.
  7. I have not time to discuss in depth this part of the project. But I am going to show some relevant results for my talk. Previous studies on the demography of the species identified significant differences in ecologically relevants traits related to reproductive performance and vegetative grow.
  8. In other handthe elevational gradient is associated with an environmental stress gradient, with the lowest population experiencing the most stressful conditions, constraining seedling establishment….
  9. that seems to be the main demographic bottleneck of the species.
  10. Common garden experiments, however, showed evidence for local adaptation in seed germination and seedling survival in these low-edge populations … …. And some experiments in controlled conditions suggest that this adaptation could be related with drought tolerance
  11. With this in mind, our second objetive is to elucidate the genetic basis of these repsonses. More specifically we aimed to… LEER We lack of knowledge about NGS and genome-wide asoseison studies. But lakili we have been able to stablish a colaboration with ETH and particularly whit Alex and Nik that are helping us in our first steps in this topic.
  12. We aims to perform trasncriptome comparisons between high and low elevations during the seedling stage. At the moment, we have performed the massive sequencing of the transcriptome of 6 seedlings grown under controlled conditions (one for each of 6 study population: 1 located at high elevaation and 1 at low elevation in three mountains). High elevations are meant to represent the environmental optimum for the species, whereas low elevation represent marginal environmental conditions (warmer and drier).
  13. At the moment we are following a reference-based transcriptome assembly.
  14. but, we are also working in the novo transcriptome assembly that we will have ready in the next months.
  15. Transcriptome analysis are involving the identification of polymorphisms and diferential expression levels in candidate genes between indivduals from high and low elevation. We expect to find some candidate genes related with responses to abiotic stimulus, particularly drought stress.
  16. From the sample size you can infer that our wok is currently in a very incipient stay. Our aim at this point is to identify some good candidate genes to be used in subsequent steps. Question… We have implemented some alternative strategies for selection of candidate genes. Now I will to briefly explain these strategies.
  17. Regarding differncial expression analysis in thefigure is showed the comparison of expression levels between high and low elevations We estimated the mean RPKM per contig and per elevation
  18. one hundred and twentz nine genes were differentiallz expressed between elevations. This genes are represented by Red and blue circles in the figure We then performed an enrichment analysis to find which Biological proccess were over-represened in this set of candidate genes detecting two terms overrepresented compared with all genes covered by the refence-based assembly. Namely, Expression estimation for transcripts. A) Left compasion of RPKM (Reads per kilobase per millino mapped reads) among elevations. B) Distirbution of RPKM differntials obsered between igh and low elevaitons.
  19. We used Reads2SNP for SNP calling. After several filtering process we identify about one hundred and fifty thousand of SNPS distribured in twelve thousand eigth hundred contis. With an average of fourteen SNPS per contig.
  20. We have implemented three alternative strategies for selection of candidate genes based on frequency distribution of the SNPS Within and between elevations.
  21. In the first approach we used the frequency distribion of the alleses to construct contingency tables. In the table on the top I shows an example for a gene with 3 SNPs. The distribution of the first and second allele in the six plants is showed in colums. With this information we can construct a contingency table with the observed frequency of the First and second allele in high and low populations.
  22. In order to select candaite genes we applied a Persons’s chi square test to identify genes with a non-random distirbution of the alleles among elevations. Using this framework, we detected 646 candidate genes. Enrichment analysis detected only one significantly enriched process
  23. The second approach is based on the dispersal parameter previously proposed to detecting geographical clustering between individual alleles.
  24. Instead of use the geographical location of each plant as in previous stuides, we used the elevation of each population. To explain this approach Let’s consider one example with the second allele of the first SNPs.
  25. First, for each allele, we computed mean elevation or barycentre.
  26. Then we estimated the average distance of the allele to the barycentre: this value is called the dispersion of an allele or dispersal parameter. Singletons were excluded from the data set this means that we only considered alleles present in at least two populations.
  27. For the selection of candidates genes We used permutations to detect alleles more geographically clustered than expected at random.
  28. With this approximation we selected four hundred eighty six genes that were enriched for three GO terms. Namely…
  29. In the third approach we estimated minor allele frequency differentials between elevations
  30. An SNP were considered outlier if AFDs were > 3 SDs the genome-wide average. We detected 1 222 highly diffrenteiated SNPS between high and low elevations that were distributed in 419 candidate genes enriched for carbohydrate metabolic process.
  31. Before I finish I would like show you this venn diagram showing…LEER 6 genes overlapped among all approaches and 163 among at least two approaches. Enrichment analysis detected enrichment for biological processes related with response to stress and biotic stimulus and several aditional terms realted to metabolic processes. False discovery rate correction Which estimates are more appropiate? Which additional estimates should be investigated?
