McClintock is the Endowed University Professor of Polar and Marine Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His talk, “From Penguins to Plankton: The Impacts of Climate Change on the Antarctic Peninsula,” addresses dramatic alterations in the Antarctic marine ecosystem and how they demonstrate the need to address global climate change. McClintock’s research has been funded continuously over the past 25 years by the National Science Foundation and focuses on aspects of marine invertebrate nutrition, reproduction, and Antarctic marine chemical ecology. The lecture was presented by the UTSA College of Architecture, Construction and Planning (CACP) and College of Sciences (CoS) as part of the Fall 2015 CACP Speaker Series.
