Science by the Pint is a free science café in which we invite a Boston-area research lab out to a pub or brewery to chat science over a cold one or two. The events are geared toward a general audience – all are welcome and no experience is necessary!


This week's event features:

Coral reefs in a changing world

Speaker: Dr. Sarah Davies
Where/When: Monday, 2/3/2020, Saloon (255 Elm St, Somerville, MA 02144), 6:30pm

Changing climates and ongoing anthropogenic habitat modifications threaten natural ecosystems worldwide. In response to these threats, a species has four choices: i) remain in the natal habitat but suffer reduced fitness, ii) acclimate to current conditions by modifying their physiologies, iii) adapt to the local environment through natural selection on standing genetic variation, or iv) disperse to new, more favorable environments. Research in my lab studies the potential roles of acclimation, adaptation, and dispersal in an organism’s response to rapid climate change.

We hope to see you there!
