Research Focus 🌱🔬:

Dr. Lucas A. Zena’s research focuses on understanding cardiovascular physiology and environmental adaptations in aquatic and reptilian species. His work delves into the effects of ischemia on electrocardiograms in salmonid fish, the impact of temperature on energy metabolism in red-footed tortoise hatchlings, and the thermal plasticity of cardiac barostatic reflexes in rainbow trout. Additionally, his studies explore the influence of hyperoxia on fish aerobic performance and the prevalence of environmental hyperoxia-induced thermal tolerance. Through a diverse range of species, Dr. Zena contributes valuable insights into physiological responses to environmental challenges, enhancing our understanding of aquatic and reptilian biology.
