Welcome to the Stillman Lab

We study the environmental physiology of marine and aquatic organisms in order to better understand the ecological consequences of physiological responses to climate change. Many of our projects focus on organismal responses to changes in temperature, pH, and salinity associated with global climate change, ocean acidification, and changes in freshwater flow in riverine and estuarine ecosystems.

We research a broad diversity of marine organisms, including crabs, sea hares, coccolithophores, clams, and freshwater invertebrates including crustaceans and insects. A broad range of approaches are used in our studies, including laboratory and field work, and response variables we measure include morphology, metabolic physiology, protein biochaemistry, and genomics, in particular transcriptomics.

The Stillman Laboratory is mainly closed at present. Berkeley undergraduates wishing to get involved with research should contact Emily King (see "Lab Members" page)
