Environmental science major Clint Valentine is always looking for an adventure.
Social insects such as ants, termites, and some bees and wasps live in a sort of eternal “airplane environment.”
Retired Marine Col. Mark Mykleby said at a campus lecture this week that the nation’s biggest problem is global unsustainability and it will take behavioral change, not national strategy, to fix it.
Most species are content with just one form of reproduction, but not for the coral p. damicornis. These guys make babies sexually and asexually. Doctoral candidate David Combosch wants to know why.
The Marine Science Center has welcomed several new faculty members whose focus is urban coastal sustainability.
In an ongoing effort to keep its neighbors in the loop about significant happenings at the Marine Science Center, Director Geoff Trussell recently sat down with the Lynn Item to talk about recent construction and plans for the Center’s future.
Understanding and predicting the biogeographic consequences of climate change requires some pretty sophisticated modeling. Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues present a framework in the journal Ecology and Evolution to explore how confidence in our forecasts can vary depending on a few simple, measurable metrics of physiological performance.
The Helmuth Lab would like to take you where you may have never been before. Using Gigapan cameras, a number of virtual tours have been recorded in and around the Marine Science Center and beyond.
Ryan Myers of the Ayers lab is working on a unique question…how to get robots to “smell” their surroundings in order to better represent typical group behavior of a particular species – in this case, bees.
