Review paper on bivalve pathogens in Maine published

Biology Honors student and BMSS 2015 alumna Madeline Schuldt ’18 and advisor Sarah Kingston contributed to a synthesis of bivalve pathogen history in the state of Maine. Madeline’s honors research builds on this historical base to monitor population dynamics of the oyster pathogen MSX, Haplosporidium nelsoni, in the context of a changing climate. Madeline collaborates with the lab of José Fernandez-Robledo at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences.
