Our Lab . . . in the Media

Dec 2016: Look for Pfister & Wootton lab data on downward trends in ocean pH and mussel shell thickness at Tatoosh Island. In the issue on US National Parks in the National Geographic Magazine, p. 117. Here

Matt Wood has been writing about our research through the Science Life blog at the U of Chicago:

Modern mussels are thinner now compared with those in Native American middens (with a salute to Robert Paine):

The fate of nitrogen in the ocean is an area of research common to the Marine Biological Lab and our lab. Our 2014 Coastal Nitrogen Synthesis Charette at the MBL resulted in this paper about coastal animals, their microbiomes and nitrogen processing:
