Recent studies have increasingly recognized feedbacks between ecological and evolutionary processes as an important factor to predict future dynamics. Previous studies on eco-evolutionary dynamics have tended to focus on the effects of the presence/absence of phenotypic variation on ecological dynamics. I discuss the importance of considering the details of trait variation, introducing my recent studies about phenotypic plasticity, introduction timing of genetic variation, and genetic bases of ecological traits in predator-prey models.
