Great Barrier Reef.

Parkinson was awarded the NSF fellowship for his proposal to examine the response of coral larvae and their symbiont communities to stressors associated with climatic change, such as rising sea temperatures and increased ocean acidity. This summer, he will begin his graduate degree in Biology, working with Dr. Iliana Baums, a Rosenstiel School alumnus currently at Pennsylvania State University.

For two consecutive years, students in Baker's laboratory have received these coveted fellowships. Last year, Rachel Silverstein and Nitzan Soffer were recognized with Graduate Research Fellowships from the NSF.

Sean Bignami received an Honorable Mention from the NSF for a proposal on the carry-over effects of conditions such as high and low food availability between life stages of larvae, juveniles, and adult marine fishes. Bignami, who is working with Drs. Su Sponaugle and Robert Cowen, will participate in both field and laboratory experiments, use aquaculture for raising larvae in captivity. Bignami entered the Ph.D. program at the Rosenstiel School in summer 2008 after he earned his degree in Aquatic Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Kevin V. Brix also received an Honorable Mention from the NSF for his research on the evolutionary physiology of osmoregulation in aquatic organisms. Working with Dr. Martin Grosell, he is using pupfish, Cyprinodon sp., as a model organism to comparatively investigate the sodium transport mechanisms fish have evolved to osmoregulate in fresh water environments. Brix entered the Ph.D. program at the Rosenstiel School after earning his degree in Biology from the University of North Florida, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2008.
