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.
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.
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.
Research by MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries illustrates important relationships between environmental conditions and urchin skeletons, providing potential for improvements in historical reconstructions.
