Dr. McClintock, Endowed University Professor of Polar and Marine Biology at UAB, gave his talk "From Penguins to Plankton – the Dramatic Impacts of Climate Change on the Antarctic Peninsula" on October 2.

McClintock recently returned from his 15th research expedition to Antarctica where he and his research collaborators have become among the world’s authorities on Antarctic marine chemical ecology and drug discovery and have developed an award-winning interactive educational outreach web site (UAB In Antarctica). His expertise on the ecological impacts of climate change and ocean acidification on marine life of the Antarctic Peninsula has garnered numerous invited lectures and published pieces. His book Lost Antarctica: Adventures in a Disappearing Land (Palgrave/MacMillan) was released in September 2012 and has garnered considerable national and international praise. In June 2013, a video short based on his book was produced and released by the EO Wilson Biodiversity Foundation that featured narration by Harrison Ford.
