Abstract

Significance: The rapid evolution of herbicide resistance in weeds provides a tractable system to study adaptive evolution. Investigations into the dynamics of herbicide resistance development in agroecosystems will advance our understanding of evolutionary biology, as well as guide the formulation of recommendations to control herbicide-resistant weeds. Materials and Methods: Accurate and efficient strategies to characterise and monitor weed populations are required. Populations can be monitored directly by gathering phenotype and genotype data; as well as indirectly by predicting phenotypes using genomic prediction. This thesis investigated the adaptive evolution of weed populations with ..
