Biological Impacts of Climate Change

Studying the impacts of past and current climate change on individual organisms, species, and ecosystems. Includes observational, experimental, and theoretical research of the effects of changing climate patterns, pollution, ocean acidification, and and related processes.

Potential graduate students interested in this topic may want to apply for the Climate, Ocean, and Atmosphere MS and PhD programs or the MAS Climate Science & Policy Program.

Centers, Labs, and Programs

We use sequence-based approaches, flow cytometry, modeling, and other techniques to explore the structure and function of microbial communities.

Our mission is to advance interdisciplinary science and applications that empower people and communities to better understand climate change impacts and implement adaptation strategies.

Focused on understanding the interactions between light and living organisms.

The WECLIMA group studies relationships between regionally impactful weather extremes and large-scale climate variability and change. We also collaborate across disciplines to study impacts on public health, ecosystems, water resources, wildfire, energy, and air quality.
