New NSF grant to study biodiversity on a changing planet!

October 1, 2023

This NSF-funded project includes UNC PIs Adrian Marchetti and Harvey Seim, with collaborators Monique Messié at the Monterrey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and Diego Figueroa at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UT-RGV), who will use ship-based field sampling, a mooring, laboratory culture experiments and numerical modeling to examine how variations in nutrient delivery impact marine plankton in the Galápagos Archipelago.
