Murtugudde India Science Wire blog tackles biological resilience

ESSIC / AOSC Professor Raghu Murtugudde authored a new blog post on the India Science Wire called “How biological response may help avert another mass extinction of species.” Murtugudde notes that some species, like sea stars, have developed genes that make them more resilient against changing ocean temperatures or disease. The article ponders whether more species may be able to develop similar responses as they face human-induced mass extinction.
