A key innovator in the field of geomicrobiology, the professor of biological sciences and earth sciences led pioneering explorations to understand the subseafloor biosphere.
Fossil fuel emissions are likely responsible for changing the types of nitrogen fixers that are growing in the ocean, a new USC Dornsife study has shown. Some sea life will thrive, others will fade.
USC Dornsife scientists are combining marine and evolutionary biology to thwart the effects of climate change in the ocean. How climate change affects ocean life and human health will be discussed during a March 12 Dornsife 2020 conference at the Doheny Library.
An international workshop held at USC and organized by USC Dornsife’s Douglas Capone and David Hutchins probes how climate change affects our oceans.
Standing up against racism. Saving the oysters. Allowing science to progress. Just a few monumental topics in USC Dornsife 2020’s range of view.
