D.** Ancient dolphin genomes reveal rapid repeated adaptation to coastal waters. Nature Communications, in press. (*joint first author ; **joint senior author) Parallel evolution provides among the strongest evidence of the role of natural selection in shaping adaptation to the local environment. Yet, the chronology, mode and tempo of the process of parallel evolution remains broadly debated and discussed in the field of evolutionary biology. In this study, we harness the temporal resolution of paleogenomics to understand the tempo and independence of parallel coastal ecotype adaptation in common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). For this, we generated whole genome re-sequencing data from subfossil dolphins (8,610-5,626 years BP) originating from around the formation time of new coastal habitat and compared them with data from contemporary populations.
