The Biology Research Symposium is a celebration of research conducted by students in the biological sciences at FIU. The purpose of the Symposium is to allow students to present their projects, proposals, and results in a friendly, professional atmosphere. At the same time, the entire Department benefits as people become familiar with the work of others. Graduate and undergraduate students are allocated oral presentation and poster slots. All faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate, and undergra
An unprecedented marine heat wave that swept the Southeast Indian Ocean in 2011 has given FIU scientists a glimpse into the future of climate change.
Located in the sub-tropics and with more than 30 faculty members working in the region, FIU is ideally situated for the study of biodiversity and conservation of the tropics — from the mountains to the forests to the oceans. The School of Environment, Arts and Society (SEAS) unites this research to promote a better understanding of tropical conservation, create opportunities for ground-breaking biomedical discoveries and develop sustainable production methods to address global food shortages.
The loss of sharks could contribute to the destruction of one of the planet’s most under-appreciated sources of carbon storage — seagrasses. While sharks are often sensationalized as voracious predators, it’s their actual prey that poses a risk to seagrasses, according to FIU researchers.
