‘Spooky' fish in extreme environments - aquarium fish go toxic
Monday 31 October, 6.15pm
Dr Rüdiger Riesch
School of Biological Sciences
Animals that live in extreme environments are fascinating, and provide biologists with valuable tools to study ecology and evolution. This lecture gives an overview over the types of extreme environments inhabited by livebearing fishes (for example guppies and mollies), and will then specifically focus on
those that are known from caves and toxic springs, and the fascinating traits that help them survive in those environments. The talk links with several common A-level biology topics, such as ‘how organisms exchange substances with their environment'', ‘organismal responses to changing environments’, and
‘genetics, populations, evolution and ecosystems’.
