Most students spend their summers working odd jobs or catching up on much-needed rest, but a group of doctoral students in the FIU Marine Sciences Program recently took part in a research cruise along Florida’s west coast. Going out 100 miles into the Gulf of Mexico, the eight students were exposed to a variety of genetic sampling and acoustic tools and techniques used to evaluate biodiversity and distributional patterns of marine invertebrates and fishes.
Mike Heithaus has been named interim dean of the FIU College of Arts & Sciences, effective July 1.
Marine Science graduate students Andy Schantz and Adam Zenone will be among the research crew during Fabien Cousteau's "Mission 31" at Aquarius Reef Base.
