• Conservation Physiology: Comparative Growth Physiology On the Land and In the Sea

    • October 21, 2016

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.
