UC’s Krebs Lecture 2021: Accelerating species recovery through the application of genomics – a tale of the Tasmanian devil and the koala
Professor Kathy Belov will deliver this year’s Krebs Lecture at the University of Canberra, outlining her extensive research into using genomics applications to save endangered species – and touching on fascinating evolutionary adaptations with far-reaching implications.
Analysing past rates of evolution, University of Canberra researcher Dr Joanne Bennett has found that many species won’t be able to adapt their physiologies fast enough to respond to climate change.
