Life-History Strategies of Marine Organisms – FULL

Overview: This lab and field oriented class will first provide a foundation in evolutionary biology and population biology and then build on those principles in order to understand variation in, and the evolution of, life history traits.  Life history traits are those traits that are directly involved with the schedule of survivorship and reproduction.  Life…

Marine Plankton Ecology – cancelled

OverviewWhat to ExpectOverview Instructors:  Dr. Diana Varela & TBA Overview:  This course will investigate the ecology and diversity of phytoplankton and zooplankton, and the links between plankton biology and the physicochemical characteristics of the marine environment in which they live. In the ocean, phytoplankton and zooplankton have unparalleled taxonomic, morphological and genetic diversity, and are…

Diana Varela

The goals of my research program are to understand the causes and consequences of variations in marine primary production, and the links between phytoplankton physiology and biogeochemical cycling in the ocean. In particular, we study the eco-physiology of carbon, nitrogen and silicon acquisition in marine phytoplankton, and the sensitivity of the individual uptake mechanisms to…
