28mar3:00 pmINHS Seminar, Dr. Alessandro Marco Catenazzi: "Will mountaintop frogs raise to the heavens in response to climate change and disease?"

Event Details

Join Dr. Alessandro Marco Catenazzi to learn how climate change is forcing many montane species to move to higher elevations. Tropical mountains, which are characterized by high levels of biodiversity and endemism, are conducive to comparative and experimental studies of species responses to climate change. In the eastern slopes of the Andes, many plant and animal groups are shifting their elevation ranges, but not frogs, which are suffering widespread fragmentation of their elevational ranges. Many biogeographical filters might prevent frogs from moving upslope.
