A big part of what we do is publish in the peer-reviewed and edited scientific literature. Below are some recent publications by our scientists, affiliates, and volunteers.
Potential impacts from simulated vessel noise and sonar on commercially important invertebrates
Juvenile and sub-adult blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus) and American lobsters (Homarus americanus) were exposed to simulated low-frequency vessel noise and mid-frequency sonar to study the impacts of a noisier ocean on stress and behavioral outcomes, including competition.

Metabolic response to temperature stress in the Colombian freshwater crab Neostrengeria macropa (H. Milne Edwards, 1853) (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pseudothelphusidae)
Freshwater crustaceans from the mountains of Colombia are a useful indicator group for how aquatic species will respond to climate change. Physiological performance was evaluated for the Colombian pseudothelphusid crab, Neostrengeria macropa, over a temperature range predicted by future IPCC scenarios.
