About the blog
Satisfy your curiosity…
This blog is for science enthusiasts to explore the behavioral and physiological tactics animals use to contend with their changing environments.
Find out answers to questions like how birds are able to hover while fishing or feeding their chicks, why songbirds switch from eating insects to fruits in the fall, and how New England frogs and snakes combat cold temperatures during the winter!
Environments are changing more unpredictably than ever, and some organisms are failing to match to and survive in their habitats. Our posts will highlight the things that we can do to help animals and ecosystems in need.
Find out what excites physiologists & ecologists about the world we live in. Us scientists don't have all of the answers! Join the conversation and get sciencey with us, suggest topics we should cover, help with research, and let's investigate these flexible animals together.
