Marine Biology

The leatherback turtle population is getting some much needed help.

Dr. John Roe, assistant professor of biology at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, is tracking, studying and helping to develop strategies that will help to revitalize the leatherback population.

The undersea discovery of a large seep of methane in the North Atlantic may hold the key to learning a great deal about the underwater ecosystem.

Dr. Steve Ross, research professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington's Center for Marine Science, calls the ocean floor the last great frontier on Earth. His work into the depths of the Atlantic will help scientists better understand a wide variety of things about oceanic life and beyond.

We can learn a great deal from the analysis of the ear wax of whales.

In today’s Academic Minute, Dr. Stephen Trumble, associate professor of biology at Baylor University, explains how a whale’s ear wax can help us find definitive answers to a wide array of questions.

Dr. Stephen Trumble is an associate professor of biology at Baylor University. His research primarily focuses on the physiological adaptations and mechanism of animals in extreme and changing environmental conditions. In 2003, he earned a PhD in marine biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks
