Gene discovery and expression profiling in the toxin-producing marine diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
Toxic algae are a growing concern in the marine environment. One unique marine diatom, Pseudo-nitzschia multiseries (Hasle) Hasle, produces the neurotoxin domoic acid, which is the cause of amnesic shellfish poisoning. The ...
Scale closure in upper ocean optical properties : from single particles to ocean color
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
Predictions of chlorophyll concentration from satellite ocean color are an indicator of phytoplankton primary productivity, with implications for foodweb structure, fisheries, and the global carbon cycle. Current models ...
Physiological and behavioral diagnostics of nitrogen limitation for the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
Distribution, growth, and transport of larval fishes and implications for population dynamics
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2021)
The early life stages of marine fishes play a critical role in population dynamics, largely due to their high abundance, high mortality, and ease of transport in ocean currents. This dissertation demonstrates the value of ...
