Living on the Edge: Mangroves

Smithsonian TMON
Mangroves provide essential habitat and coastline protection but are under threat. In addition to deforestation, climate change is altering mangrove forest habitats and causing important consequences for marine organisms and the humans who rely on them for sustenance and economic stability. MarineGEO scientists are studying mangrove expansion due to warming winters and the threats to this valuable ecosystem. Music: "Warmer" by Andy G.

What is a Squidpop?

Smithsonian TMON
A visual demonstration of the Squidpop assay and its role as a tool for marine science.

The Importance of Mangroves - Educational Video

Smithsonian TMON
Video by Daniella Heflin - During the project "Scaling the biodiversity of mangrove roots" lead by Matthieu Leray from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama, this educational movie was created to educate about the needs and values of mangrove forests and its biodiversity.

Squidpop Tutorial

Smithsonian TMON
The Smithsonian's MarineGEO project shows you how to make the simple 'Squidpop' assay, as easy and accessible way to measure fish predation.

Carbon Sinks in the Ocean

Smithsonian TMON
Carbon released into the atmosphere by human activities will have important consequences for our ocean and our world. Understanding where and how carbon cycles through the environment will help people make decisions about management and conservation of our marine resources. To answer the "where" and "how" of coastal carbon cycling, MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellow Lisa Schile is employing the most unlikely of tools -- teabags.

Underwater Meadows & Resilient Seas

Smithsonian TMON
Dr. Justin Campbell describes the importance of seagrass habitats in the marine environment.

Carbon in our Seas: Measuring Ocean Acidification

Smithsonian TMON
MarineGEO scientists are using the latest technology to understand patterns of ocean acidification in our coastal waters and its effects on ecosystems.

Biodiversity Buffers

Smithsonian TMON
Coastal marine environments are impacted by human disturbance. Dock pilings allow MarineGEO researchers to study these impacts in a standardized way around the world to understand whether biodiversity serves to stabilize ecosystems in the face of disturbance. MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellow Simon Brandl looks at the hidden diversity of little fishes and invertebrates on dock pilings to see if species rich dock pilings can better buffer these ecosystems against the effects of habitat loss. If higher diversity buffers against disturbance, there is incentive to preserve it.

Marine Urbanization

Smithsonian TMON
MarineGEO scientists recognize human-made habitats as rich sources of biodiversity as well as hotspots for invasive species. Marine habitats made by humans like docks and pilings are one of the most common habitats in the nearshore ocean, but they often have been overlooked in ecological studies. Using publicly available video technology, MarineGEO takes inventory and monitors these ubiquitous habitats to answer questions about the movement and resilience of marine species.

Story of the Squidpop

Smithsonian TMON
Dr. Emmett Duffy, director of the Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network tells us how the Smithsonian's new MarineGEO program will use "Squidpops" to answer some of our most basic questions about the marine environment.

The Sounds of Biodiversity

Smithsonian TMON
Biodiversity, the living organisms all around us, can be a tricky quantity to measure. How can we count all the species on a busy reef with limited time and resources? The answer may be by listening to them. MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellow Erica Staaterman is using cutting-edge technology to record and analyze the noises marine organisms make to tell us who they are and what they are doing.
