Research in the Buckley lab focuses on physiological responses of marine species to elevated temperature and other stressors. We work on fishes from various habitats, comparing responses from eurythermal species such as temperate, estuarine gobies to the cold-adapted stenothermal species endemic to Antarctica. Using genomics-enabled technologies such as cDNA microarrays, we are interested in characterizing broad-scale patterns of environmentally controlled gene expression, with the goal of linking these patterns to phenotypic changes at the cellular and organismal level. Building an integrated understanding of how events at the molecular level can impact a species' ecology is key to our ability to predict the effects of the coming change in global climate, particularly in the fragile Antarctic ecosystem.
