Summary

Ben Smit is a lecturer in animal physiology and evolution in the Department of Zoology at Nelson Mandela University. Ben studies how current and historical environmental factors, as well as an organism's evolutionary history, influence the physiological traits of thermoregulation, and energy- and water balance in vertebrates. To address these questions, and others involving environmental selective pressures, Ben's research integrates physiological, behavioural and ecological factors at an individual, population and community level.
