New research from marine scientists at Northeastern shows that the behavior of middle predators in marine food webs plays an important role in the welfare of the whole system—and that, like our behavior, middle predator behavior is pretty fickle.
Northeastern researchers will investigate the effects of global change on reef ecology as part of Mission 31, documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau’s 31-day underwater expedition off the coast of Florida.
Jennifer Elliott, a doctoral candidate at the Marine Science Center, is pursuing research to determine how best to rehabilitate the coral reefs in her homeland of Mauritius, a small island located in the Indian Ocean.
Today’s post was generously contributed by Samantha Wessel, an undergraduate biology major who’s currently on co-op at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center in Nahant, Mass. Among other things she’s doing up […]
Last May I posted about a very cool science communication project from Randall Hughes and David Kimbro, both assistant professors of marine and environmental science. Before they came to Northeastern a […]
Oh dear god, they said snow…again. At least if you get to spend your days playing up at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, it’ll be pretty: Video courtesy of Northeastern […]
Sir Richard Roberts, a Nobel laureate and globally recognized leader in genomics and molecular biology, has joined the university as a Distinguished University Professor in the College of Science.
Northeastern professors have teamed up with Fabien Cousteau, the grandson of famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, to lead Mission-31—a 31-day research operation on the ocean floor off Florida’s coast.
