Harrison

Dr. Harrison gave an outstanding seminar in which he reviewed some of his major research discoveries. His work has included examining how insects tolerate various temperatures and how changes in the levels of atmospheric oxygen may relate to variations in insect growth and overall body size. He has also examined the mechanics of respiration in the insect tracheal system. It was a fascinating talk!
