Jack J. Devlin is a biologist with expertise in ecology and physiology of the Antarctic midge (Belgica antarctica). His work places focuses on the abiotic and anthropogenic stressors on B. antarctica physiology, using both field and laboratory approaches. As both the climate and human presence in Antarctic continues to change, this research will provide insights into how this highly adapted species may respond.
