These transects yield data that are critical for ongoing studies of climate change and introduced species in the Gulf of Maine, as well as providing evidence on species site and abundance shifts. Interns will be collecting and identifying all species in their transects, and using the data collected to ask other ecological questions. This internship provides excellent training for future employment in marine biodiversity surveys.
