Workshop “Stress and immune responses in relation to adaptation in Antarctic Fish”

Domingo, 21 Abril, 2019
 

Antarctic fishes have undergone adaptive radiation in a constant low temperature environment and acquired specializations highly adapted to the specificities of their special environment. As climate change presses, the new environmental conditions will change ecosystems and test the limits of tolerance of these fishes. As part of the ongoing project “Notothenia” funded by the National Science and Technology of Portugal (FCT), the workshop brings together a group of experts in genomics and physiology:

  • to discuss and frame results in the context of ongoing research on Antarctic Fish Physiology, Adaptation and Climate Change 
  • to identify knowledge gaps and future research directions on Antarctic fish physiology  
  • to promote interdisciplinary and international collaboration
