Inspiration Dissemination

Where are all of the male sea turtles? It turns out that sea turtles do not have sex chromosomes and their sex is instead entirely determined by the temperature of eggs during incubation. As the planet continues to warm, this is creating a severe imbalance of female hatchling turtles. We chat with Vic about how mathematical models can help to forecast how the green sea turtle population will adapt (or not) to climate change through their reproductive behaviors.

What is Inspiration Dissemination?

Inspiration Dissemination is an award-winning radio program that occurs Sunday nights at 7PM Pacific on KBVR Corvallis, 88.7FM. Each week on the program, we host a different graduate student worker from Oregon State University to talk about their lives and passion for research here at the university. By presenting these stories, we can present the diverse, human element of graduate research that is often hidden from the public view.
