Recently published research by a Northeastern undergraduate, several faculty members, and other colleagues highlights the vulnerability of Zostera marina to habitat fragmentation. Seed density and dispersal of this perennial seagrass are negatively affected by fragmentation, thus impacting seagrass bed health and resilience.
A study by a team of Northeastern faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students examines the role that geography plays in how successful the spread of the invasive reed, Phragmites australis, may be.
NUSCI contributor Lucas Cohen shares the uncut transcript from his interview with MSC Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier, in which they discuss everything from Gouhier’s research to that path that brought him to Northeastern.
A new study lead by MSC researchers explores how the movement of materials and organisms between marine reserves can influence their effectiveness in conservation and management.
A new study co-authored by Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier illustrates how monitoring environmental variation can improve the predictive and experimental power of scientists studying the impacts of climate change on marine life.
According to MSC Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier, as our climate changes, important oceanographic processes such as coastal upwelling are projected to change also.
Climate change over the 21st century will significantly alter an important oceanographic process that regulates the productivity of fisheries and marine ecosystems, according to an interdisciplinary research team led by Northeastern University.
MSC professor uses modeling and field testing to understand how environmental & ecological processes shape ecosystems across scales in space & time.
The diverse assemblage of microbes that inhabit the bodies of all living organisms has been recently called the next great frontier of scientific exploration. The microbes that make up the human microbiome outnumber our own cells 10 to 1, and scientists are only just beginning to understand the role of these microbial mutualists in humans […]
In order to better understand and protect natural systems, Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier highlights the need for ecologists to move away from the notion that all ecosystems are in equilibrium.
