Benthic Meiofauna & Macrofauna – Dr. Paul Montagna – Harte Research Institute/Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

Meio- and macrofaunal communities in the Gulf provide diverse ecosystem services to the benthic environment. Animals like Copepods and Nematodes are the base of the food web and their abundance and diversity can indicate the health of the seafloor.

Podcasts from The Loop

The Loop is a series of podcasts which take an in depth look at C-IMAGE research. Partnering with Mind Open Media reporters Ari Daniel Shapiro and David Levin, our researchers share the importance of their studies and how they help our understanding of oil spills. David and Ari have produced eight podcasts and have more in the queue. The podcasts are linked below. Plug in and learn about our research!
