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.
Scientists, including MSC Professor Brian Helmuth, are researching how to best protect and maintain the marine resources of southern China and Southeast Asia in the face of climate change and other anthropogenic impacts.
A new study by Three Seas Alumnus Jason Selwyn and MSC graduate student Alan Downey-Wall illustrates how chaotic genetic patchiness in tropical gobies can offer insight into the genetic structure of marine ecosystems.
Associate Professor Jen Bowen, PhD student Patrick Kearns, and their colleagues’ research in the Great Marsh suggest that microbes play an important role in the provision of ecological services.
The MSC is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Jen Bowen to Northeastern and to Nahant, where her expertise in marine microbial communities will benefit the academics, research, and outreach of the Center.
Assistant Professor Katie Lotterhos recently applied her statistical analysis expertise to to determine which conifer genes are adapting to climate change
MSC Outreach Co-op Andrew Madanjian shares reflections from his experience with the Coastal Ocean Science Academy high school program
