PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

HONOURS/MSC PROJECTS: The evolution of plasticity in thermal tolerance

Understanding the effects of climate change on natural populations is a driving force for environmental and ecological science today. The ability of plants or animals to respond to changes in the environment they experience can determine whether populations will survive or go extinct in a changing world.

This project is open to Bachelor, Honours and Masters students
