Estimating the Impacts of Climate Change at the Scale of the Organism

The Department of Biological Sciences Seminar Series is pleased to welcome Dr. Alex Gunderson from Duke University:

"Climate change is causing environmental temperatures to rise across the globe. But despite the global scale of this phenomenon, organisms experience climate change at the local level. Using tropical Anolis lizards as a model system, I will outline my research on the susceptibility of ectotherms to warming based on fine-scale measurements of changes in habitat conditions and detailed descriptions of how the animals respond. I focus on the physiological, behavioral, and evolutionary mechanisms that may allow populations to persist in the face of global change."


This seminar is hosted by Dr. Michael Sears (


As usual, all seminars in our series are free and open to the public.  Please visit our seminar calendar for more information and other events.
