Christine’s research is looking at the populations of larval bivalves in Waquoit Bay and how the tidal currents within the bay transport them during their planktonic phase before they grow into adults and settle on the bottom.

Marine environments close to home are a vital resource for graduate students. For example, Jonathan Blythe studied barnacle recruitment at Gardiner Beach in Woods Hole. Nearby locations such as this have been visited for barnacle recruitment research for over five decades. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
