1. Anthropogenic activities influence ongoing selective regimes leading to changes in phenotypic variation of plants and animals. The reduction of phenotypic variation may decrease populations’ ability to cope with environmental changes. To counteract the increasing risk of extinction of affected populations it is important to rescue intraspecific variability, assuring higher success of establishment and persistence under global changes.
2. We evaluated whether it is possible to revert phenotypic changes caus
