New work by MSC PhD student Rebecca Certner and Associate Professor Steve Vollmer identifies mechanisms by which disease can spread in endangered coral species.
A new study co-authored by Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier illustrates how monitoring environmental variation can improve the predictive and experimental power of scientists studying the impacts of climate change on marine life.
Patterson Lab Research Technician Sara Williams has received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to begin studies at the MSC this fall
A new study by MSC postdoc Rachel Gittman shows that living shorelines can help to ameliorate the stress imposed on coastal habitats by development and climate change.
MSC Professor Bill Detrich has been awarded a $1.25 million grant from the National Science Foundation to continue his research in Antarctica on how the changing climate might impact the uniquely-adapted icefish
MSC postdoc Torrance Hanley has co-edited a book, and co-authored one of it’s chapters, examining the interaction of bottom-up and top-down forces across ecosystems.
According to research by MSC Associate Professor Jon Grabowski and colleagues, the ability of oyster reefs to promote denitrification, thereby removing excess nutrients, likely depends on the habitat setting in which they are found.
Recent graudate Ethan Edson, who is conducting research in the Patterson Lab at the MSC this summer, has designed a sensor to detect microplastics in the ocean.
MSC Director Geoff Trussell is leading an interdisciplinary research study this summer with the goal of identifying common rules governing community organization that can be scaled up to explain broad biogeographic variation across the Gulf of Maine.
Cutting edge DNA sequencing technology has allowed MSC researchers to decipher complex phylogenetic relationships between Pacific reef-building corals.
