Our lab members, collaborators, and colleagues make fundamental discoveries about how organisms cope with severe environmental challenges, and how complex physiological traits respond to environmental stress. These discoveries have implications for improving human health and predicting the resilience of organisms in the face of a rapidly changing planet, two of humanity's most pressing problems. We help to train the next generation of scientists, biomedical professionals, and wildlife biologists, the very people who will help us meet these impending challenges, through our teaching and outreach activities. All of these activities cost money.  We spend it to employ scientists and students, buy specialized equipment and chemical reagents, and travel to our field sites to conduct our research and conferences to share our results. 

We have been fortunate to be funded by taxpayers through various federal and state agencies and through donors to private organizations. We are extremely grateful for this support, and we work hard to stretch every dollar.

If you would like to directly support our work and make a donation - we have more ideas and energy than we do dollars - please contact us or click here. To indirectly support our work, and that of other scientists across the US, you can contact your legislators and urge them to support the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and other federal agencies that fund basic and applied science in the US. 

A very sincere thank you to our current, recent, and future supporters!
