Marine sciences graduate student Kelly Pennoyer presents talk at MBMSS symposium

Kelly-PennoyerKelly Pennoyer, UNE graduate student in the marine sciences master's program, presented a talk at the 39th Maine Biological and Medical Sciences Symposium at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory in Salisbury Cove, Maine. Her presentation was titled “Physiological polymorphism at the whole animal, cellular and molecular level during salinity stress in two color morphs of Carcinus maenas," which was co-authored by her research advisor, Markus Frederich, Ph.D., associate professor of marine sciences.

To investigate salinity tolerance in invasive green crabs, Pennoyer measures gene and protein expression of various ion transporters as stress parameters, as well as organismic parameters of animal performance, such as crabs running on a treadmill. Watch a video.
