An international research team led by Dan Distel, director of the Ocean Genome Legacy at Northeastern University, has discovered a novel digestive strategy in a wood-boring clam. The breakthrough, the researchers say, may also be a game-changer for the industrial production of clean biofuels.
New research from Marine and Environmental Sciences professor Justin Ries explains how moderate increases in ocean acidification and temperature can enhance the growth rates of some reef-forming corals.
Steven Scyphers, a postdoctoral researcher at the Marine Science Center, has won the Best Paper of the Year award for 2013 from American Fisheries Society.
Four professors in the College of Science explain what drives their passion for science and discovery.
Catherine Matassa has published a paper in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
It is our pleasure to announce an important transition for Northeastern University’s Three Seas Program.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Northeastern University has received a four-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop new ways to study how marine organisms respond to climate related severe temperature stress.
Northeastern professor Brian Helmuth, an expert on climate change and environmental policy, has co-authored a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change examining the need to further integrate science into U.S. climate and ocean policy.
Northeastern graduate student Marissa McMahan is marshaling her scientific training and her family’s connection to the Maine lobster industry to research the black sea bass’ northern range expansion due to climate change.
Assistant professor Loretta Fernandez has developed a straightforward method for determining the concentration of contaminants likely to end up in the tissues of organisms living in polluted waterways.
