Stemming from a 2016 international group of scientists where researchers discussed a new framework for understanding the impacts of global change on marine ecosystems, Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues worked to describes how we can best predict the larger, ecosystem-scale impacts of global change.
Seagrass restoration efforts often involve collecting transplants from one or two source sites. According to research by Assistant Professor Randall Hughes and colleagues, there was sometimes a benefit, and never a cost, of including three source sites per transplant plot rather than one.
Recent research by Grabowski Lab postdoctoral researcher Rachel Gittman and colleagues suggests that nature-based coastal protection schemes may be able to more effectively align with shoreline homeowner needs.
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.
On sustainability, MSC Director Geoff Trussell addresses the “collision between humanity and the environment.” How, he asks, can we create cleaner, safer, smarter coastal communities? This talk examines that question.
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, […]
Department of Marine & Environmental Sciences Associate Professor Martin Ross weighs in on research suggesting that an eighth continent, Zealandia, should be recognized.
New research by Professor Bill Detrich provides the first detailed record of the embryonic development of an Antarctic fish, paving the way for research on the effect of ocean warming on this cold-loving species.
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.
