Frozen Frogs and Climate Change
Local Wood Frog populations are remarkably well adapted to the cold. A Wood Frog can survive being frozen solid in the winter. How have Wood Frogs been touched by climate change? What does the future hold for this fascinating amphibian? Researcher and PhD candidate Yara Alshwairikh will talk about her work on genetic variation in this species and its incredible tolerance for the cold. With a few specimens from the Peabody’s collection that have been essential in her research, Yara will walk you through how museum samples are used to generate molecular data in the lab.
