29 October 2018: Lecture Andrea Cabrera
Climate change is affecting the distribution of species, population dynamics and trophic interactions across a wide range of ecosystems. However, predicting the long-term consequences of contemporary, short-term observations remains a challenge. The ice age transitions during the last millions of years were characterized by similarly rapid and dramatic increases in temperature and linked environmental changes, providing a unique opportunity to assess the long-term consequences of climate changes in natural populations.
In this lecture, PhD researcher Andrea Cabrera will explain the role of glaciations on the distribution, abundance, genetic structure, and migration of marine mammal populations. The lecture will mainly focus on the polar regions both North and South, and on the environmental changes that occurred during the past glacial-interglacial transition. Throughout the lecture, we will discover how genetic data can help us to unravel the history of marine mammal populations.
