Intraspecific variation in key physiological traits such as tolerance of warming and hypoxia can have profound effects on ecological and evolutionary processes, including responses to climate change. In this talk, Dr. Schulte will review some of her ongoing studies of the basis of intraspecific variation in thermal and hypoxia tolerance in fish through processes such as phenotypic plasticity, epigenetic effects, and genetic variation within and among populations, and show how this information can be useful for managers and policy makers as we attempt to conserve fish biodiversity.
