A study of wetland birds shows city storks did better than their non-urban counterparts when natural marshes are in bad shape. Urban areas buffer a species from the unpredictability of natural food sources.
FAU Harbor Branch researchers conducted the first long-term, in-depth analysis of the elasmobranch community in the southern Indian River Lagoon, categorizing 630 individuals of 16 species.
FAU researchers and collaborators have received a grant from the National Science Foundation to study populations in risky housing conditions in the midst of a pandemic and a very busy hurricane season.
A scientist from FAU's Harbor Branch received a grant from Florida's Department of Environmental Protection to develop a sensing and visualization package to monitor harmful algal blooms in Lake Okeechobee.
Four researchers from FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science and the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science have received the coveted National Science Foundation Early Career (CAREER) award.
A study led by FAU's Harbor Branch examined 83 stranded dolphins and whales in North Carolina and Florida. Researchers looked at 11 different animal species to test for 17 different substances.
FAU Harbor Branch researchers examined the outcome of a bottlenose dolphin calf in the Indian River Lagoon entangled in fishing line wrapped tightly around its upper jaw and found severe, long-term damage.
The loss of a sense of smell is known to be one of the earliest signs of Parkinson's disease (PD). In a new study, an FAU neuroscientist and colleagues link inflammation, olfaction and pathology seen in PD.
A new FAU study reveals that urgent action is needed to protect billions of dollars in real estate investment across South Florida due to impacts of sea level rise over the next several decades.
Using biotelemetry, FAU Harbor Branch researchers are the first to characterize the ecology and fine-scale habitat use of "near threatened" whitespotted eagle rays in Florida.
