The National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs awarded a grant to Dr. Scott Santagata, Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Sciences, to help fund his research on the environmental impact of climate change in Antarctica. Dr. Santagata will study Antarctic benthic marine invertebrate communities by analyzing the genic evolution of invertebrate organisms, known as the bryozoans or ectoprocts.
