Assistant professor Loretta Fernandez has developed a straightforward method for determining the concentration of contaminants likely to end up in the tissues of organisms living in polluted waterways.
Last week, Northeastern researchers were joined by Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Stephen W. Director to converse with audience members at the Boston Museum of Science from a unique vantage point: the bottom of the ocean at the Aquarius Reef Base off Florida’s coast.
When animals must balance the fear of being eaten with their own need to feed, their decisions affect the entire ecosystem. New research from professor Geoff Trussell, who directs Northeastern’s Marine Science Center, suggests this effect is even more pronounced under future climate change scenarios.
