UNE’s 7th Annual Ludcke Lecture, presented by Professor of Marine Sciences, Dr. Markus Frederich. Dr. Frederich is currently investigating stress tolerance in genetically different populations of European green crabs. These invasive crabs decimate the soft shell clam fishery in New England. With his students, Frederich tests whether crabs from Maine, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Iceland have different tolerances to stress leading to different levels of environmental destruction.
