Science on Tap: How Animals Respond to Climate Change

  • September 27, 2017 • 7 PM – 8:30 PM
  • Kirkwood Station Brewing

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. This month, Dr. Carlos Botero, professor of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis, will speak to us about how animals (humans too!) respond to climate change.

Environmental conditions play a major role in determining the survival and reproduction of individuals and the long-term persistence of populations. The Botero Lab uses 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, Dr. Botero will describe in general terms how we seek to develop a better understanding of these processes in organisms ranging from yeast to man.
