UConn ecology and evolutionary biology professor Mark Urban has crunched the numbers, and the results are clear: For every degree that global temperatures rise, more species will become extinct. Urban’s analysis and his research on a key species of fish in the Arctic provide a wake-up call to all of us that environmental policies need to change in order for our planet to survive. This is just one way UConn is unleashing the solutions of tomorrow. Discover more at WeGetIt.uconn.edu.
