George Somero studies the effects of environmental factors like temperature and salinity on marine organisms and examines the adaptive responses made by organisms to these stresses. Studies focus on processes at all levels of biological organization, from biogeographic distribution patterning to molecular-level responses, e.g., shifts in gene expression.
