|Baker, Brett||Marine Science||I primarily use genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics to understand how microbial communities persist in nature. My group primarily focused on the microbial ecology of marine sediments and the …|
|Brown, Richard||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology||The central theme of my research is cellulose, the most abundant macromolecule on earth. With some 10 11 tons produced and destroyed each year, we need more information on its structure and its …|
|Buskey, Edward||Marine Science||Professor Buskey's research interests in marine science have focused on studies of the behavioral ecology of marine zooplankton, and how sensory perception mediates behavioral adaptations for …|
|Dunton, Kenneth||Marine Science||Benthic marine plants, whether they include the kelp of the Polar Ocean or the seagrasses of the subtropical Gulf of Mexico, are extremely valuable resources to coastal ecosystems. They are critical …|
|Erdner, Deana||Marine Science||Current research in the Erdner lab focuses on the genetics of bloom-forming algae, particularly toxic dinoflagellates. Examples of ongoing projects include: - population genetics of toxic …|
|Erisman, Brad||Marine Science; College of Natural Sciences||1. Spatial and temporal interactions between fishes, fisheries, coastal habitats, marine protected areas, and endangered species. 2. Proximate (e.g. social, environmental) and ultimate (e.g. …|
|Fuiman, Lee||School of Biological Sciences; Section of Integrative Biology; Marine Science||Professor Fuiman's research includes both laboratory and field experiments on the behavioral and sensory capabilities of fish larvae. Much of it involves frame-by-frame motion analysis of video …|
|Gardner, Wayne||Marine Science||Nitrogen cycling is important in coastal and estuarine ecosystems because nitrogen is transformed to a variety of forms, by autotrophic and heterotrophic processes in the water and sediments, and is a …|
|Liu, Zhanfei||Marine Science||Dr. Liu is mainly interested in the source, distribution and diagenesis of biogenic compounds in the ocean. Most biogenic compounds are produced in the surface ocean through photosynthesis, and they …|
|McClelland, James||Marine Science||Environmental changes as a consequence of human activity, including changes in land use, land cover, and global warming.|
|Min, Dong-Ha||Marine Science||Main goals of my research are (i) to better understand physical and biogeochemical processes in the marine environments, and (ii) to better delineate the responses of the environment to climate …|
|Moore, Terri||Statistics and Scientific Computation|
|Olson, Suzan||Statistics and Scientific Computation|
|Shank, Gerald||Marine Science||Marine geochemistry - coastal ecosystems, coral reefs|
|Thomas, Peter||Section of Integrative Biology; Marine Science||Cloning and Characterization of Steroid Receptors, Mechanisms of Endocrine Disruption, Molecular Mechanisms of Steroid Action. Professor Thomas's research interests are the endocrine control of …|
|Villareal, Tracy||Marine Science||Dr. Villareal's research interests are in understanding the processes and interactions that structure phytoplankton communities. He has two major research areas: the autecology of the oceanic …|
