TERRESTRIAL ECTOTHERMS THERMAL ECOLOGY IN A CHANGING WORLD: THEORY AND PRACTICE Registration deadline postponed
TERRESTRIAL ECTOTHERMS THERMAL ECOLOGY IN A CHANGING WORLD: THEORY AND PRACTICE

From March 21, until March 23, 2022 - CIBIO-InBIO, Vairão, Portugal (Online & Face-to-face)

The course will provide the students with an overview of the theory of thermal adaptation, with a particular emphasis on terrestrial ectotherm animals. The sessions will cover animal thermoregulation, links between temperature and life-history traits, adaptation to anthropogenic climate change, and biogeographical aspects of thermal biology. The practice will explore some of the most used technique to study thermal biology.

11:30 - 13:00h - Thermoregulation, acclimation and adaptation in ectotherm animals

14:00 - 15:30h - Multiple adaptive peaks, adaptive hybridization and phenotypic plasticity

16:00 - 17:30h - Methods, tools and procedures in thermal studies

DAY 2. 22 March 2022

9:30 - 11:00h - Global temperature and ectotherms biodiversity and distribution

11:30 - 13:00h - Water and temperature constraints on ectotherms

14:00 - 15:30h - Effects of anthropogenic climate change on ectotherms

16:00 - 17:30h - Biogeography and comparative methods in thermal biology

DAY 3. 23 March 2022 (unavailable to online participant)

9:30 - 12:30h - Lab practice: techniques and tools in thermal ecology
