Wikelski and Cooke (2006) describe Conservation Physiology “as the study of physiological responses of organisms to [human] alteration of the environment that might cause or contribute to population declines”. The physiological component examines organism function including metabolism, nutrition, and endocrine responses to environmental changes as well as other intrinsic organismal functions. In our WERC Seminar this Friday I will present several of my previous terrestrial and aquatic mammal nutritional-endocrinology research projects and current toxicology projects. As a new member of the WERC team I hope to familiarize the community with my work to facilitate new areas of collaboration.
Each Friday during the academic year we have seminars where faculty and students present information of interest. It's an excellent opportunity to hear about current research and for students an introduction to the academic exchange of information with peers.We meet in Duckering 531 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
When you have your talk organized or would like to reserve a date please submit an image or graph that will be used at your talk, along with caption, abstract, title, and the date you'd like to give the talk to firstname.lastname@example.org. Final decisions about the schedule are made by the WERC Director.
