Planting trees isn’t the only way to help forests fight climate change. Letting forests regrow naturally could capture 1.6 billion metric tons of carbon/year, @nature_org & @smithsonian ecologists found in a study mapping global potential forest regrowth: https://t.co/Yc9Uo1iolV https://t.co/NYmfWe3iMR

While it was challenging to get a sense of the texture and size of marine invertebrates remotely, the #interns learned to identify them by color and appearance. After the #internship, Grant and Daniel both said they want to pursue research in the field of ecology.

For their virtual summer #internships, Grant Shimizu examined how aquatic invertebrate animals like tube worms react to predators, and Daniel Lopez studied how seasons impact marine animals’ competition for space. (📷NOAA) https://t.co/avtbyCQqNh

The diversity of #marine life tends to be higher closer to the equator, where predators are also abundant. Predation can lead to the decrease & loss of some species. Besides avoiding being eaten, marine invertebrates also compete for space, light & nutrients. (📷Rebecca Burrell) https://t.co/2csovkV2y9

What's a research team to do, when a parasite is infecting mud crabs in Chesapeake Bay, forcing them to spawn parasite larvae, and your #citizenscience team can no longer work on campus? Science, not science fiction: https://t.co/9OJfFoXx1V @SERCinvasions @ChesBayMag

She spent 13 years on horseback traveling from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, a journey that astonished many who saw her. Ynés Mexía was an avid adventurer, happily sleeping outside & riding in short pants, proving her critics wrong that women couldn’t travel solo in Latin America.

#DYK that on Ynés Mexía’s first botany expedition, she gathered 500 specimens? That’s the same number Charles Darwin collected on the HMS Beagle voyage, which took almost 5 years. She went on to collect over 150,000 specimens, discover 2 new genera and describe 500 new species.

Ynés Mexía (1870-1938) was a Mexican American botanist, explorer, field scientist & a significant contributor to the field of botany. She was also a non-traditional college student, starting her educational career at 51, proving there is no defining age to become a scientist. https://t.co/0iy5hIMyIQ

Nicholas Starosta is a rising senior at @eckerdcollege  working from Novi, Michigan. He explored whether recruitment and species diversity increase toward the tropics. This #internship allowed him to apply the scientific method he learned in the classroom to real-world data. https://t.co/bs9TIr7z5U

Riya Rampalli, a rising junior at @MillsCollege, interned remotely from Sacramento. Predator-prey interactions are one of the most common relationships in nature, and Riya looked at whether predation drives changes in species location and diversity. https://t.co/ofzIgue0jE

If #seastars, sea cucumbers, #marine worms and other marine invertebrates face intense pressure from fishing or predators, they might lose their habitat. The #interns researched how predation intensifies closer to the tropics and is less apparent farther away. https://t.co/17zdtbjcyf

#InternSpotlight Meet two #interns working remotely for our @SERCInvasions lab on San Francisco Bay! This summer Riya Rampalli and Nicholas Starosta looked at the effects of predation on #sea creatures without a backbone, a.k.a. #marine invertebrates. https://t.co/S3wsIX5ipm

Linsey Haram works with @SERCinvasions & @floateco studying species rafting on #oceanplastic in the #GreatPacificGarbagePatch. When COVID struck, Mary Crowley’s (@oceancleanup) vessel safely collected 103 tons of plastic for Haram’s #ResearchAmidCOVID https://t.co/LtLYR4GMLF
