Larry Brand, Ph.D., professor of Marine Biology and Fisheries, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Dr. Brand studies the interaction of ecological and evolutionary processes in marine phytoplankton, how fast and to what extent phytoplankton populations and species are able to adapt to their local environments. Over a hundred species isolated from different areas of the ocean, representing all the major phylogenetic groups of algae, are maintained in the laboratory. His field research addresses environmental quality as it relates to nutrient transport from the Everglades to Florida Bay.
