Discovering marine science on the wild wet coast; Ambrose University Zoology students share their field trip adventure!
Kelps from wave-swept shores have either a streamlined morphology to reduce drag, or increased attachment and breakage force, but not both, having implications for the evolution of morphological diversity in this group.
BMSC is gearing up for another season of Field Trips, with the first group arriving on the weekend.
This book by Duncan Irschick and BMSC instructor Tim HIgham examines how and why ‘animal athletes’ have evolved using examples from across the animal kingdom, integrating them into the broader context of ecology and evolution.
