interactions among physiology, behavior, ecology, and evolution
in animals that occupy the dynamic habitats such as estuaries and
the intertidal zone that fringe the ocean's margins. These
habitats require animals to cope with extreme and rapidly fluctuating
contemporary environmental conditions. Rare, but extreme, environmental events
- and the functional abilities needed to endure them - are also
likely to play a significant role in determining future ecological and
evolutionary patterns. We apply
approaches at multiple levels of biological organization (proteins,
organisms, populations) as part of an integrative approach to understanding animal
function in the face of such extremes. We pursue the ultimate goal of assessing the ecological
and evolutionary implications of environmental stress physiology in a dynamic and changing ocean.
Postdoc Lani Gleason recently accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Genomics at Sacramento State University!
Pending final NSF approval, we will be searching for a new postdoctoral researcher to join the lab on an intertidal copepod project for summer/fall 2017. Support is available for up to 3 years.
