Project:

The Effect of Decreasing pH on the Marine Isopod Population in Cold Spring Harbor
Students:
Cooper Oster, Hayden Calabretta, Maxwell Franz
School:
Cold Spring Harbor High School, Suffolk
Mentors:
Sheila Mauriello

Abstract:

We intend to use DNA Barcoding to identify various species collected, including Marine Isopods, to see how decreasing pH levels have impacted biodiversity over time. We will compare our class collection to past studies, including the Davenport Study, to understand the changing trends in these population over time.
