Climate Change's Effect On Animal Reproduction
We know that climate change is dramatically and adversely affecting habitats of many endangered species, but it is also skewing the male-to-female ratio of certain animals. Today on River to River, we talk with two Iowa State researchers who study how climate change may halt the sexual reproduction of turtles, lizards and fish due to a lack of males.
Also, we sit down with Chris Brochu, an Associate Professor of Geology at University of Iowa to discuss recent research on the death of the dinosaurs that is making waves in paleontology.
