Climate-ecological interactions: Individual, population and community connections

Principal Investigators:

Warren P. Porter

My overall goal is to complete a synthesis of bioenergetics/behavior models with ecological interactions models. I will focus on terrestrial animals and the microclimates available to them at global localities in the past, present or future. The results will appear as a substantial paper and a book (11 of 15 chapters done already) with user friendly computer programs for research and teaching.
