How do organisms respond to changing environments?
The emerging field of ancient genetics is a “time machine” for exploring genetic patterns through history. So far, we’ve found fascinating clues to human evolution. Now plant and animal studies are offering similar opportunities.
Our upcoming online talk with Binghamton University’s Dr. Lua Lopez will explore how ancient genetics helps us understand wild plant and animal populations.
- Why the woolly mammoth went extinct
- What an ancient cat skeleton in Cyprus revealed
- How one tiny plant is responding to climate change
Understanding whether plants and animals can adapt to rapid environmental change is essential to preserving our natural environment.
