SBC student Lindsay Marks wins Nancy Foster Scholarship
SBC graduate student Lindsay Marks is one of three students nation-wide to be awarded NOAA's highly competetive Nancy Foster Scholarship in 2013, administered by the National Marine Sanctuaries. Marks studies the susceptibility of kelp forest communities to invasion by exotic species and the effects of marine protected areas (MPAs). She is specifically interested in Sargassum horneri, an invasive seaweed rapidly spreading throughout southern California, and her research is aligned with the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary. The scholarship was established in honor of Dr. Nancy Foster, a pioneer in marine ecosystem-based management. The program encourages independent graduate-level research in oceanography, marine biology, and maritime archaeology
