SBC research on genetics of giant kelp featured in ESA Podcast
A new research paper on the genetics of giant kelp by SBC investigators Filipe Alberto, Dan Reed, Ali Whitmer and their collaborators published in Ecology in January was chosen as the topic of a Field Talk in the Ecological Society of America (ESA) Podcasts. This feature, which interviews Filipe, highlights the importance of Euclidean distance and habitat continuity in determining genetic connectivity among populations of this important foundation species. ESA Field Talks explore research results and the stories of the ecologists behind them. The Field Talk on giant kelp can be viewed at: ESA Podcast
