Dr. Anne Todgham is an Associate Professor in the Department of Animal Science at the University of California Davis. Anne is an animal physiologist with an interest in understanding the strategies animals use to cope with environmental change. Currently her research program has an eye towards global climate change and addresses the general question of whether aquatic animals have the physiological flexibility necessary to withstand the unprecedented rates of environmental change. She is particularly interested in how organisms respond to multiple stressors that are predicted to change simultaneously, such as temperature, hypoxia, salinity and ocean acidity. She, her students and her postdocs are trying to understand how well these animals are at multi-tasking the various energetic demands placed by different stressors.
