Physiological responses of aquatic organisms to environmental change. Particularly interested in the responses shown by cold-adapted ectotherms to climate change. Past projects have studied stress responses in Antarctic and Arctic fish, and the effects of latitudinal thermal gradients on the expression of myosin heavy chain isoforms in the muscles of marine crustaceans. Recent work has concentrated on latitudinal variations in metabolism and growth in congeneric species of gammarid amphipods.
