Meeting Abstract

BART.1  Saturday, Jan. 4 19:00  George A. Bartholomew Award Lecture: Fitness consequences of maternal and embryonic responses to environmental variation WARNER, D.A.; University of Alabama Birmingham

Dan Warner, University of Alabama Birmingham, was selected as the 2014 Bartholomew Award winner and will give the Bartholomew Lecture on January 4, 2014 at 6 pm, followed by a social hosted by the Division of Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry (DCPB).
Dr. Warner holds a B.S. degree in Animal Ecology from Iowa State University (1998) and a M.S. degree in Biology from Virginia Tech (2001). After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Sydney (2007), he returned to Iowa State University as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology. Starting in fall 2012, he is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Warner's research seeks to understand the ecological and evolutionary processes that shape organismal responses to their environments across different life-history stages (from embryo to adult). His research uses lab and field experimental approaches and integrates aspects of ecology, physiology, genetics and behavior to empirically test theoretical predictions of adaptive evolution. His primary areas of interest are environmental sex determination, developmental plasticity, and maternal effects. His research uses reptiles as models to address these topics.
