MSC postdoctoral researcher Jonathan Puritz and colleagues recently examined how the field of seascape genetics has grown and how this research can contribute to marine conservation and management.
A new study co-authored by MSC researchers investigates dynamics of larval recruitment in Atlantic Cod and impacts on population recovery in the Gulf of Maine.
A recent study by a team of scientists including MSC Professor H. William Detrich sheds light on the mechanisms by which Antarctic fish evolved rapidly in the Southern Ocean.
PhD candidate Chuck Roesel of the Vollmer Lab has contributed to an updated RNAi research and resource portal that shares study protocols, tools, and other resources that can be used by researchers utilizing functional genomics screening.
Undeclared Daniel von Staats found a calling in marine science while taking a SCUBA class, which soon turned into an research internship with Assistant Professor Randall Hughes and a field course in the Caribbean.
Assistant Professor Randall Hughes, Christine Ramsay-Newtom (S’15), and colleagues studied the 5-year impacts of the invasive Dasysiphonia japonica at the species, community, and ecosystem level to better understand how the invader itself changes immediately following its establishment.
Associate Professor Randall Hughes recently received a highly competitive early career award from the National Science Foundation to further her research on the causes and consequences of genetic diversity in marine ecosystems.
Masters work by Emily Duwan of the Helmuth Lab involved developing digital tools to visualize climate change on the Boston waterfront, and is featured in a blog by Journalism student Gwendolyn Schanker.
Research by postdoc Jon Puritz and colleagues on genetic diversity in red snapper was recently published in Nature, and suggests that studies of species engaged in broadcast spawning may be misleading if the spatial scale of the study is too small.
Professor Bill Detrich weighs in on the import of the recent establishment of the largest marine reserve on earth in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
