Behavioural stress propagation in benthic invertebrates caused by acute pH drop-induced metabolites (2021)
Journal Article
Feugere, L., Angell, L., Fagents, J., Nightingale, R., Rowland, K., Skinner, S., …Wollenberg Valero, K. C. (2021). Behavioural stress propagation in benthic invertebrates caused by acute pH drop-induced metabolites. Frontiers in Marine Science, 8, https://doi.org/10.3389/fmars.2021.773870

Studies on pH stress in marine animals typically focus on direct or species-specific aspects. We here test the hypothesis that a drop to pH = 7.6 indirectly affects the intra- and interspecific interactions of benthic invertebrates by means of chemic...

Functional genomics of abiotic environmental adaptation in lacertid lizards and other vertebrates (2021)
Journal Article
Jovanović Glavaš, O., Storey, K. B., Wollenberg Valero, K. C., Garcia-Porta, J., Irisarri, I., Feugere, L., …Storey, K. B. (in press). Functional genomics of abiotic environmental adaptation in lacertid lizards and other vertebrates. The journal of animal ecology, https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2656.13617

Understanding the genomic basis of adaptation to different abiotic environments is important in the context of climate change and resulting short-term environmental fluctuations. Using functional and comparative genomics approaches, we here investiga... Read More about Functional genomics of abiotic environmental adaptation in lacertid lizards and other vertebrates.

Thermal stress induces a positive phenotypic and molecular feedback loop in zebrafish embryos (2021)
Journal Article
Scott, V. F., Feugere, L., Wollenberg Valero, K. C., Scott, V., Rodriguez-Barucg, Q., & Beltran-Alvarez, P. (2021). Thermal stress induces a positive phenotypic and molecular feedback loop in zebrafish embryos. Journal of Thermal Biology, 102, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtherbio.2021.103114

Aquatic organisms must cope with both rising and rapidly changing temperatures. These thermal changes can affect numerous traits, from molecular to ecological scales. Biotic stressors are already known to induce the release of chemical cues which tri... Read More about Thermal stress induces a positive phenotypic and molecular feedback loop in zebrafish embryos.
