Title: Global Warming, Coextinctions and the Colonization of Novel Environments by Insect Herbivores
This talk will explore ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change on plant-arthropod interactions. To address this fascinating topic, this talk will combine evidence from field and laboratory experiments with biodemography, quantitative genetics, molecular biology and insect physiology to understand how arthropods adapt to novel environments, for example, novel host plants or projected global warming.
