Fates of populations in modified habitats
Wild populations are facing unprecedented global change. I study the nature of this change through the lenses of ecology and evolution. In particular, I ask whether populations experiencing environmental change are adapting or becoming maladapted. The overarching goal of my research is to develop understanding of the fate of natural systems influenced by human activities.
Faruk Senturk was awarded the SCSU Undergraduate Research Grant to study the physiology of (mal)adaptive responses to road salt pollution. Congratulations Faruk!
