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, […]
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.
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.
Masters work by Emily Duwan of the Helmuth Lab involved developing digital tools to visualize climate change on the Boston waterfront, and is featured in a blog by Journalism student Gwendolyn Schanker.
Research by postdoc Jon Puritz and colleagues on genetic diversity in red snapper was recently published in Nature, and suggests that studies of species engaged in broadcast spawning may be misleading if the spatial scale of the study is too small.
