Grassle Fellowship Fund
The intent of the Grassle Fellowship Fund (GFF) is to support post-generals graduate student research related to ocean biodiversity or physical-biological interactions. The ocean biodiversity theme relates to five questions: What lives in the ocean? Where do they live and why? How many are there? Are there long-term trends in biodiversity of marine ecosystems? If so, what factors affect observed/predicted changes? The physical-biological interactions theme relates to the effects of physical processes at all spatial scales on the ecology of marine organisms or ecosystems.
The role of early life-stage bottlenecks in setting up along-fjord diversity gradients in benthic fjord communities
Establishing mesopelagic food web structure in the North Atlantic via simultaneous, multi-ship sampling
Assessing the role of priming in riverine organic carbon remineralization and burial
Contextualizing Emiliania huxleyi thermal acclimation experiments
Exploring cryptic biodiversity in the invasive golden star tunicate using low-coverage whole genome sequencing
Assessing shifts in dispersal and population connectivity of Semibalanus balanoides over 20 years of ocean warming
