Adventures in Rockweed: Researching the Ecology of the Maine Coast

Rockweed.

For some it’s the low tide slippery stuff between a swimmer and the swim, for others it’s strands of green to be kept from a propeller. It’s also a fascinating marine alga, an ecosystem unto itself, a provider of energy to the upland and to the ocean alike—and understanding how this curious system works is more than enough to keep a researcher busy forever.

To kick off Schoodic Institute's Tuesday Lecture Series, the institute's Marine Ecology Director Hannah Webber will share some research adventures in the rockweed ecosystem across the coast of Maine.
