Environmental change is a ubiquitous feature of ecosystems around the globe. Whether it is related to climatic change, human development, or natural processes, organisms must be able to respond and adapt to variations in their environment. We study the mechanisms by which individuals are able to respond to change and link these strategies to variation in the size of entire populations and species. We primarily work with species that inhabit extreme environments or exhibit extreme behaviors, as these species are predicted to be less capable of coping with rapid environmental changes.
