The Stillman Laboratory in the Department of Biology studies the effects of climate change and human impacts on marine and aquatic organisms in response to warming, increasing frequency and severity of heat waves, carbon dioxide acidification, salinity gradients, hypoxia and other environmental stressors.

We study the environmental physiology of marine and aquatic organisms in order to better understand the ecological consequences of physiological responses to climate change. We study a diversity of marine organisms, including crabs, sea hares, coccolithophores, clams, and freshwater crustaceans and insects. We adopt an integrative approach, with laboratory and field-based studies across levels of biological organization from ecosystems to organisms to genomes.

Our work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and a number of other public and private funders.
