Panning for worms

Research specialist Stace Beaulieu (at left), Summer Student Fellow Eric Rozell, and other students examine invertebrates they sieved from the sand and sediments in the tidal channel at Woodneck Beach on Cape Cod. Beaulieu and senior scientist Lauren Mullineaux offered the field trip this past June as a crash course in field identification of benthic creatures such as clams and polychaete worms. Mullineaux and Beaulieu study the ecology of marine invertebrates, particularly how species disperse and colonize remote habitats such as hydrothermal vents and seamounts.
