Abalone in a changing climate
We show how temperature and CO2 interact to determine fertilization success of abalone under potential future climate conditions.

Larval fish use Batesian Mimicry to improve survival
Using the In Situ Ichthyoplankton Imaging System, Adam shows how larval fish morphologically and behaviorally mimic gelatinous zooplankton. These traits are selected for even when negative selection at the adult stage is 1000 times stronger due to the larval stage bottleneck.
Fine-scale structure in plankton communities in the Gulf of Mexico
We demonstrate fine-scale structure across plankton communities in response to oceanographic structure using the In Situ Ichthyoplankton Imaging System.
