How Animals* Respond to Climate Change
Lessons learned from ecology and evolutionary biology

*including humans

Assistant Professor of Biology

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.

Environmental conditions play a major role in determining the survival and reproduction of individuals and the long-term persistence of populations. At the Botero Lab we use a diverse set of tools from ecology and evolutionary biology to explore how animals cope with and adapt to variable and unpredictable conditions and how these responses ultimately shape biological communities. In this talk, I will describe in general terms how we seek to develop a better understanding of these processes in organisms ranging from yeast to man.

Science On Tap highlighted on St. Louis Public Radio and Voice of America!

Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, at the Kirkwood Station Restaurant & Brewing Co.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: about 45 minutes of presentation, followed by discussion until 8:30 PM.
