As living shorelines have rapidly increased in popularity, the science has matured to a level where the first textbook on the science and practice of living shorelines has been released. Assistant Professor Scyphers has co-authored a book chapter framing the potential benefits of living shorelines for nature and people.
Recent PhD graduate Lin Zhu of the Ayers Lab and colleagues recently published work aiding understanding of how brain and spinal cord mechanisms in lobster ganglia generate rhythm transitions that translate to things such as changes in animal speed.
Undergraduate student and Three Seas Program alum Ben Moran has been named a Goldwater Scholar, which recognizes sophomores and juniors who intend to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering.
The Boston Harbor & Islands Science Symposium, held April 11-12, brought together 200 scientists, citizens, resource managers, decision-makers, and students to share their expertise and experiences studying Boston Harbor. The Symposium featured diverse formats in which attendees could learn about what is being studied, including field trips, panels, keynote talks, a networking breakfast, concurrent sessions, […]
Doctoring dolphins and mapping shipwrecks, tagging turtles and aging fish, reconstructing a skeleton and creating seaweed art. These were just few of the skills that students were able to learn and practice at the annual High School Marine Science Symposia, earlier this month. Co-hosted by Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center and the Massachusetts Marine Educators, […]
