Event description
Prof Annette Broderick will talk about the predicted impacts of climate change on marine turtles & associated adaptations

About this Event

Understanding how climate change will impact species and ecosystems is critical for the conservation and management of our natural environment. For long-lived species such as marine turtles, there is concern that adaptation may not be possible within a relatively short time-scale when the greatest rate of change in global temperature is predicted to occur. This talk will provide an overview of the predicted impacts of climate change on marine turtles and explore how this group may be adapting to changing climate, drawing on research conducted at Ascension Island and Cyprus where research has been ongoing for over 20 years.

Prof. Annette Broderick's (University of Exeter) research focuses on the exploitation and status of marine vertebrate populations, in particular marine turtles, utilising satellite tracking and mark and recapture to understand the thermal ecology, sex ratios, habitat use, navigational abilitiies, growth rates and fecundity of individuals.
