In this paper, we use a genomic scan approach to test for signature of selection along environmental gradients in a climate-change sensitive mammal, the American pika (Ochotona princeps). Out of 1509 loci screened, 68 showed evidence for positive selection, 15 of which were strongly correlated with environmental variables such as annual precipitation and maximum summer temperature. As a conclusion, we propose that such markers can be used to inform novel approaches to wildlife conservation in a changing world.
