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
An international team of researchers including MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries have published work highlighting important details regarding the plight of marine calcifying organisms facing changes in ocean chemistry.
Recent work by MSC researchers Rachel Gittman, Steven Scyphers, and Jonathan Grabowski investigates the effects of manmade shoreline protection structures on biodiversity and species abundance.
To understand the genetic basis for local adaptation, researchers including MSC Assistant Professor Katie Lotteries work to identify which versions of genes are responsible for increasing survival among populations.
Students at the Johnson Elementary School in Nahant were recently able to Skype live with a Northeastern undergraduate co-op who is working at Palmer Station in Antarctica
Work by Professor Brian Helmuth and many colleagues from around the world using robomussels to track climate change was featured in the Science section of the New York Times.
For ecological forecasters such as Professor Brian Helmuth, mussels act as a barometer of climate change. Helmuth has helped to establish an enormous global dataset showing climate variation using “robomussels” installed in the field.
