Multidisciplinary research, teaching lab on the California coast


Narrator:       This is Science Today. Faculty, graduate and undergraduate students alike benefit from the research and teaching labs at the University of California, Davis' multidisciplinary Bodega Marine Laboratory. Graduate student Jill Bible, who is studying how humans impact coastal marine ecosystems, describes the variety of research.

Bible:             There are people here who study how toxins affect marine ecosystems and marine organisms. There are people here who study marine communities and how plants and animals interact. There are people here who study ocean acidification, which is a really upcoming problem for the world's oceans as CO2 is absorbed by the ocean. There's also in addition to all this marine research, there's also a terrestrial reserve here, so we have people studying invasive plants and plant-animal interactions on land as well as researching the ocean.

Narrator:       For Science Today, I'm Larissa Branin.
