About This Project

Freshwater fish account for a quarter of the world’s vertebrate species and are critical to maintaining healthy ecosystems and supporting local communities. However, freshwater fish remain one of the most vulnerable taxa to climate change, with over 1/3 of species threatened with extinction. How will fish adapt and survive in response to climate change? We are attempting to answer this question by examining the underlying genetic variation that enables populations adapt to thermal stress.
