U of G environmental sciences professor Dr. Madhur Anand appeared in this month’s issue of The Walrus for a column called “Ask An Ecologist.”

Anand addressed the question of “How is the climate crisis changing our seasons?”, noting that seasonal lengths are changing, from longer summers to shorter winters, because of climate change. 

She explained these effects could impact anything from extreme weather, like that in B.C., to disrupting the temperature-dependent metabolic processes of animals and plants. 

The director of the Guelph Institute for Environmental Research, Anand is also a member of the educational review committee at The Walrus
