Genes and Environment: Adapting to Changing Conditions


Michael Carvan,

Shaw Professor UWM School of Freshwater Sciences

When environmental conditions change, animals must also change, in order to live.  In this program, we will explore some truly unique ways that animals use to adapt to environmental extremes to enhance survival.  We also look at molecular processes used by some animals which allow them to adapt to both short- and long-term environmental changes.
