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.
A new study co-authored by MSC researchers investigates dynamics of larval recruitment in Atlantic Cod and impacts on population recovery in the Gulf of Maine.
A recent study by a team of scientists including MSC Professor H. William Detrich sheds light on the mechanisms by which Antarctic fish evolved rapidly in the Southern Ocean.
PhD candidate Chuck Roesel of the Vollmer Lab has contributed to an updated RNAi research and resource portal that shares study protocols, tools, and other resources that can be used by researchers utilizing functional genomics screening.
Assistant Professor Randall Hughes, Christine Ramsay-Newtom (S’15), and colleagues studied the 5-year impacts of the invasive Dasysiphonia japonica at the species, community, and ecosystem level to better understand how the invader itself changes immediately following its establishment.
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.
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.
