FIU researchers have traced the evolution of bioluminescence in deep-sea shrimps.


FIU researchers have traced the evolution of bioluminescence in deep-sea shrimps. The study, led by marine scientists Juliet Wong, Jorge L. Perez-Moreno and Heather Bracken-Grissom in the FIU Department of Biological Sciences, is the most comprehensive study of evolutionary relationships between deep-sea shrimps to date. Specimens were collected from the Gulf of Mexico, North Atlantic Ocean, Spain, Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan and comprise 30 species of deep-sea shrimps.

Heat wave offers glimpse into climate change


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.

Tropics at a crossroads: FIU addresses changing planet through research, partnerships and policy


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.
