Written by 

out salamanderThe potential effects of climate change on the animals — salamanders in particular — of the Appalachian Mountains will be the topic of discussion at a lecture in Highlands

 

Eric Riddell, a recipient of a Highlands Biological Foundation research grant, will give his talk titled “High and Dry: A Physiological Approach to Understanding Landscape Ecology and the Effects of Climate Change,” at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug.13, at the Coker Laboratory in Highlands.

Riddell is a first year Ph.D. student from Clemson University. His talk will examine the dynamic relationship between organisms, the landscape, and climatic conditions. He will also discuss the influence of different spatial and temporal scales in climatology and the difficulties associated with predicting future climates.
