Animal Biology

Johannes Overgaard

Johannes Overgaard

Thermobiology Group convenor

Johannes is a Professor at the section for Zoophysiology at Aarhus University, Denmark. His research is generally focused on how animals have adapted to handle variability and extremes in environmental factors such as temperature, water- and food availability? Johannes’ research seeks to establish a link between physiological mechanism/capacity and how animals can survive and thrive in their natural environment. His current research is particularly focused on the physiological processes responsible for interspecific variation thermal tolerance of insects. This research spans from behavioural responses to thermal extremes to mechanistic studies of how temperature affects metabolism, neuromuscular function and osmoregulatory regulation of homeostasis.
