    About This Project

    The warming of the world’s oceans has begun to restructure marine communities. One consequence is that species ranges often expand or contract, which may alter interactions such as predation and competition. We will be studying the ecological implications of a northern range expansion of black sea bass into the Gulf of Maine. This project will provide a framework for monitoring emergent species as ocean temperatures continue to warm.
