Most recently, I have been working on a Washington Sea Grant funded project exploring causes of mortality of tiny bivalves in the sediment.  With Jen Ruesink from UW Biology, we are exploring the possible roles of temperature and salinity stresses, small predators, and porewater acidity on survival of newly settled clams.  This work involves doing identical clam recruitment and out-planting experiments at 8 sites scattered around Washington’s coastlines.
