Group 6: Species as Stressors: Heterospecific Interactions and the Cellular Stress Response under Global Change

 

This video was completed by Bailey Scott, Marianna Frietas, Madison Jones, Kaitlin Kitchens, and Matt DeJonge. It describes how interspecies interactions can cause a change in gene expression in organisms (dubbed cellular stress response or CSR) , and seeks to further our understanding of CSR by studying competitive relations between two species of porcelain crabs.
