UGA Research Magazine Fall 2018 features several stories about Odum research
Researchers from the University of Georgia have discovered that timing of exposure is a key factor in how certain contaminants affect the reproductive system.
Approximately 61 percent of the world’s 356 turtle species are threatened or already extinct, and the decline could have ecological consequences.
Responsibilities include developing and revising instructional activities in ecology to be used in the laboratory program; planning, directing and teaching preparation sessions; oversight of instruments, supplies and laboratory teaching spaces; analysis of institutional and scientific data; and interacting with other faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates relative to the laboratory program.
Migrating monarch butterflies that mix with year-round residents have higher rates of parasite infection
A study led by ecologists at the University of Georgia has found evidence that migrating monarch butterflies may be risking exposure to high levels of disease at sites where some monarchs no longer migrate but instead breed year-round on patches of an exotic garden plant.
In a new study recently published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, researchers led by Courtney Murdock of the Odum School and College of Veterinary Medicine have found that temperature is a driving factor in the transmission of Zika virus.
