Barnstable Harbor, MA, salt marsh at low tide

Connectivity of Soft-Shell Clam Populations
Carly Strasser investigated population connectivity in soft-shell clams, using environmentally-occurring trace elements retained in the larval shell as tags of their natal habitat.

Deployment of a time-series sediment trap mooring for larval collections at the East Pacific Rise, 9°N (Stace Beaulieu)

Hydrodynamics and Larval Supply at Vents

Diane Adams' research focused on characterizing temporal and spatial variability in larval supply to deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the East Pacific Rise.

Swimming Ilyanassa obsoleta larvae (Heidi Fuchs)

Behavior and Settlement of Gastropod Larvae in Turbulence

The motivation of Heidi Fuchs' thesis research was to understand how biophysical coupling between turbulence and settlement behavior affects the supply of gastropod larvae to coastal populations.

Fiddler crab, Uca pugnax (Lara Gulmann)

Role of Digestive Symbionts in the Marsh Fiddler Crab
