Congrats to the latest MSC graduate!

Yesterday, Genevieve “G” Bernatchez defended her thesis on “The consumptive and nonconsumptive effects of the invasive green crab (Carcinus maenas) on macroinfaunal diversity, abundance and ecosystem functioning in a New England salt marsh”.  Her work demonstrated that species interactions and their cascading effects can depend on the environmental conditions in which they are found; highlighting the importance of examining species interactions across time and space. Genevieve did an excellent job of explaining A LOT of complex data that her work has generated.

Genevieve will be joining NOAA in the fall, bringing her scientific expertise to the Connecticut branch as a lab assistant.

Congrats G! You’re presence will be greatly missed here at the MSC!
