climate change ectotherms dietary shifts climate change
Sara Bento is conducting a Ph.D. in Biology by the University of Lisbon starting in 2022 within the Conservation in Socio-Ecological Systems - CSES. She is conducting the project Temperature effects and the role of gut microbiota in nutrient acquisition by aquatic ectotherms, under the supervision of Rui Rebelo (cE3c), Bruno Carreira (cE3c) and Richard Svanbäck (Uppsala University). Sara Bento Ph.D. project aims are: to study temperature and nutrient (C:N:P) interactions on individual fitness components (e.g., survival and life-history traits); to evaluate the adaptive value of temperature-induced dietary shifts; to quantify the contribution of the associated pathways (preference and assimilation) using stable isotopes analysis; to investigate the role of gut microbiota using metagenomics (16S); and to examine impacts in nature using both techniques.
