When faced with sudden environmental change, some species fare more favorably than others.Albert Ruhí, a post-doctoral researcher in ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, examines how freshwater biodiversity responds to environmental change, which becomes increasingly erratic as the earth warms.
