About This Project

Climate change is expected to have impacts on biodiversity worldwide. Many species will be faced with a choice: move to track shifting climate conditions, or try to adapt to shifting conditions. But what about animals that are poor dispersers, such as turtles? Our aim is to investigate this question using two turtle species in Wisconsin. By using genomic methods and existing genetic data, we hope to determine if turtles have enough variation in adaptive genes to respond to climate change.
