The presentation will be mainly about pharmaceuticals as environmental contaminants, and their role in interfering with the normal functioning of the endocrine system in three-spined sticklebacks. Behavioral studies over several generations will be used to assess if epigenetic responses/transgenerational plasticity could play a role in helping organisms adapt to such changes.
