Colloquium: terHorst on the limits of eco-evolutionary interactions

This week’s seminar in the Biology Department colloquium series will be presented by CSUN Associate Professor of Biology Casey terHorst. terHorst studies the ecological impacts of evolution and coevolution in adaptation to environmental change, including the adaptation of an invasive plant, Medicago polymorpha, to new habitats in its invaded range, and how algal symbionts determine the capacity of corals to cope with changing oceans.

The Biology Colloquium series is held every Friday during the semester, at 2:00pm in Chaparral Hall room 5125.
