Why does temperature affect performance? Pursuit of the underlying mechanisms in reptiles.

Rory Telemeco, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, Fresno State University

Dr. Telemeco received his PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Iowa State University and his MS and BS degrees in Biology from the University of Central Oklahoma (with a stint at the University of Sydney in Australia for his MS research). Rory then pursued post-docs in ecological modelling at the University of Washington and functional genomics at Auburn University. Rory is broadly interested in ecological and evolutionary responses of organisms (especially reptiles) to changing environments.

Managing resilience of inland fishes

Stephanie Carlson, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, UC Berkeley

Since joining the faculty in UC Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management in 2008, I have been working to develop an active research program centered on the ecology and conservation of California’s inland fishes. Similar to rivers in other Mediterranean climate regions, California’s waterways are generally altered, degraded, and invaded, and native fishes are in decline. My seminar will highlight several research threads as well as lessons learned. This body of work highlights the importance of population diversity to the resiliency of native fishes as well as the importance of maintaining a diversity of aquatic habitats, even seasonally-available ones, as a strategy for conserving aquatic biodiversity in Mediterranean climate California.
