A study shows widespread seagrass loss in Florida's Indian River Lagoon as FAU scientists experiment with growing seagrass in large tanks to try to restore some of the lost seagrass beds.
A study is the first to unveil the prevalence of plastics in the entire water column in the southern Atlantic Ocean and implicates the ocean interior as a crucial pool of 'missing' plastics.
FAU Harbor Branch scientists are the first to culture sponge cells in 3D to scale-up production of sponge biomass and bioactive metabolites for novel drug compounds.
There are more than 300,000 septic systems adjacent to Florida's Indian River Lagoon. A new FAU Harbor Branch study shows even properly functioning septic systems contaminate groundwater and surface water.
FAU has received a grant from the Florida Department of Health to continue a first-of-its-kind study of the short-term and potential long-term health effects of harmful algal blooms among Florida residents.
A study by FAU researchers is the first to reveal detailed behavior of massive goliath groupers in the wild using a custom-built multi-sensor tag combined with artificial intelligence.
