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.
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.
Recent work by MSC researchers Rachel Gittman, Steven Scyphers, and Jonathan Grabowski investigates the effects of manmade shoreline protection structures on biodiversity and species abundance.
To understand the genetic basis for local adaptation, researchers including MSC Assistant Professor Katie Lotteries work to identify which versions of genes are responsible for increasing survival among populations.
A new study by Three Seas Alumnus Jason Selwyn and MSC graduate student Alan Downey-Wall illustrates how chaotic genetic patchiness in tropical gobies can offer insight into the genetic structure of marine ecosystems.
The MSC is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Jen Bowen to Northeastern and to Nahant, where her expertise in marine microbial communities will benefit the academics, research, and outreach of the Center.
