The first annual MSC graduate student symposium was an opportunity for the community to learn more about the diversity of research going on, and for participants to gain peer feedback on their progress.
MSC Associate Professor Steven Vollmer explains why coral bleaching, typically the result of warming ocean temperatures, could lead to “the ocean’s equivalent of a rainforest with no trees.”
Associate Professor Justin Ries recently received a grant from MIT Sea Grant to advance his research on the impacts that ocean acidification may have on commercially important shellfish in local waters.
Research by a team of scientists including MSC Associate Professor Jonathan Grabowski investigates the fate of oysters as their habitat changes due to predicted sea level rise.
New research by MSC Postdoctoral Researcher Catherine Matassa and colleagues illustrates the value of considering prey traits and resource availability when examining ecosystem-level impacts of predator-prey interactions.
A study by a team of MSC and University of North Carolina researchers reveals that ocean acidification makes it harder for crabs to prey on oysters, despite the oysters having a thinner shell.
A new study by recent MSC PhD graduate Lara Lewis McGrath and a team of MSC researchers describes the first published transcriptome of the economically and scientifically important American lobster.
A recent graduate student study explores evolutionary relationships between fossilized bivalve mollusks, the relatives of modern day clams, mussels, and oysters.
Recent work by MSC researchers highlights the value of employing historical data to assess community wide impacts of habitat loss in coastal habitats.
A team of researchers including the MSC’s Francis Choi and Brian Helmuth recently published a study investigating thermal tolerance and climate change sensitivity in tropical marine snails.
