    About This Project

    My undergraduate student Sonya Royzenblat and I will track the well being of the cave beetle Ptomaphagus hirtus at different ambient temperatures to determine the temperature range at which this species can be cultured most efficiently. Besides boosting our studies of its enigmatic visual system in the lab, this insight will help to understand its dispersal limits in the cave environment, and to predict possible changes in response to global warming.

    Blast off!
