Temperature adaptation in a changing environment...

Many organisms face extinction and/or range shifts to future climate change unless they are able to stay in place(adapt). A great taxonomic group to study this are ants, since they dominate terrestrial ecosystems and have been able to cope with thermally stressful environments.

Research Objective

One way to understand species vulnerabilities or resiliency to pending temperature shifts is to determine how different species have historically adapted to changing climates, which is the main objective of my dissertation.
