Research in the Fangue lab is focused on understanding the physiological specializations that allow animals to survive and thrive in complex environments. We are currently studying a variety of aquatic species to understand whether these organisms have sufficient physiological capacity or plasticity to maintain successful performance in the face of anthropogenic environmental perturbations such as climate change. In this research, we couple molecular, biochemical, physiological, and whole-organism measures of performance framed in an ecological context, to elucidate connections between environment, physiology, and ecosystem function.
