Climate change adaptation

My research aims to understand the potential for species to respond adaptively to environmental change and identify factors that underpin climate change resilience and vulnerability

  • Evolution
  • phenotypic plasticity
  • endosymbionts
  • species distributions
  • heat tolerance
  • fertility thermal limits

Research projects

  • Exploring the potential for endosymbionts to alter climate change resilience
  • Can plasticity increase upper male fertility thermal limits?
