Environment Physiology

Filed under: Courses Taught — wallscheffler @ 21:45

This course, taught on Blakely Island, San Juan Islands, focuses on how individuals respond physiologically to their environment especially to maintain homeostasis and acquire nutrients.  Topics covered will include circadian rhythms and responses to various stressors (e.g., light, heat, salinity, climate change, hyopoxia). Two recurring themes will include discussion of the way in which organisms balance acclimation and adaptation and the manner in which organisms balance tradeoffs.
