Dr. Sam Crickenberger
Sam’s research interests focus on studying the distribution and abundance of marine invertebrates at both large and small spatial scales. At large spatial scales Sam has studied distributional limits of invasive species, local adaptation of marine invertebrate larvae, and how climate change has driven shifts in the distribution of species over the past century. Currently at the University of Hong Kong Sam is studying how sexual selection and behavior may interact to affect the susceptibility of rocky intertidal snails to climate change over spatial scales as fine as a few meters and how climate shapes physiological performance.
