The NDSU Department of Biological Sciences and co-sponsor Environmental Conservation Sciences Graduate Program are set to host a presentation by Ben Dantzer, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology and Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
Dantzer is scheduled to present “Lasting Impacts of Mothers in Wild Mammals: Effects of Maternal Stress on Offspring Physiology, Behavior and Life Histories” on Friday, Sept. 28, at 3 p.m. in Loftsgard 114.
Everyone is welcome.
Dantzer’s research group’s focus is the evolutionary and physiological mechanisms that enable wild animals to cope with environmental change the causes of variations in behavior and life history traits.
He earned his bachelor’s degree at Northern Michigan University, Marquette; his master’s degree at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette; and his doctorate at Michigan State University, East Lansing.
Dantzer’s vita lists 41 publications, with six manuscripts submitted or under review. He is a member of the editorial boards at Hormones and Behavior, Journal of Animal Ecology, Conservation Physiology, and Ecology and Evolution.
As a student-focused, land grant, research institution, we serve our citizens.
