To make the ends meet: instrinsic and extrinsic determinants of interindividual variation in telomere dynamics in non-model species (A5)
Telomeres. the chromosome ends controlling cell replication capacity , are posited to have an important role in cell senescence and ageing. Telomeres predict life expectancy, and theey are thought to link with lifestyle conditions. Additionally , within species , telomeres and their dynamic present consistent between individual differences , which could reflect inter individual variability in health and ageing rates. This session will examine factors (i.e genetics , environmental conditions, transgenerational effects , early -life programming , effects) that shape telomere dynamics and contribute to understanding the causes of interindividual variation in telomere dynamics and how this could turn shape individual ftness, ageing rates and life -history trajectories.
The effects of parental age at time of conception on offspring performance and fitness (A6)
Limits to thermal performance in ecototherms: the interplay between physical constrains, physiological boundaries and evolutionary trade-offs (A7)
This session aims to bring together different perspectives on limits to thermal performance. While loss of performance coincides with the breakdown of some physiological processes, it is currently unclear which variables may be involved and to what extent the same variables are involved in different cases, making it difficult to generalize. In this session we aim to showcase how physical processes, physiological complexity and evolutionary trade-offs interact to give rise to the diversity in thermal tolerance ranges observed across lineages and explore how they can be combined to strengthen thermal biology.

Cellular mechanisms underlying adjustments to temperature changes: insights from mitochondrial physiology and molecular biology (A14)
Mitochondrial metabolim is increasing recognized as a key mechanism that influences animal perfomance and adaptation to environmental conditions. Mitochondrial metabolic traits can be very plastic, but consistent differences still exist among individulas. This is probably due to the convoluted nature of mitchondrial proteins encoded by two different genomes but also to the ability of animals to respond to these environmental cues. Accounting for variation in mitochondrial genotype and phenotype is thus required to fully grasp the role of mitochandra in a braod range of organisms experiencing environmental changes and to explain the source of consistent variation both between and within populations. In this session , we will review the current knowledge of adjustments and adaptations allowing different organisms to cope with their environment at the mitochondrial level.
