Policy to address human-wildlife conflict is often controversial and developing policy to mitigate these conflicts is increasingly important and often driven by both societal and biological factors.  Yet the interaction between societal and biological drivers and the relative contribution of these to environmental policy remains understudied. Understanding these interactions requires both investigation of the latent […]

PhD Seminar: Temperature Sensitivity as a Microbial Trait

Charlotte Alster Presents:

Wednesday April 19th, 2017 at 4:00 PM in Yates 206

Reaction rates in biological systems are strongly controlled by temperature, yet the degree to which temperature sensitivity varies for different enzymes and microorganisms is being largely reformulated. The Arrhenius equation is the most commonly used model over the last century that predicts reaction rate response with temperature. However, the Arrhenius equation does not account for […]
