Across-shelf mixing, larval transport, and the southern range boundary of the blue musselPhil Yund, Senior Scientist, Bigelow Laboratory

Across-shelf mixing, larval transport, and the southern range boundary of the blue mussel, Mytilus trossulus


Dr. Yund studies the evolutionary ecology of sessile and sedentary marine invertebrates as well as fertilization ecology, ecology of marine mammals, fish, and invertebrate pathogens.

Currently, he is conducting research in a variety of areas:
  • the hydrodynamics and fertilization in green sea urchins, Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis;
  • evolution of gamete compatibility, and processes determining range boundaries in blue mussels, Mytilus edulis;
  • dynamics of the discharge plume from the Saco River; and,
  • host affinity of Giardia and Cryptosporidium genotypes.
