New publication: Sargassum affects incubation temperatures

I am excited to share a new article out in the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology. In it, my coauthors and I assess how Sargassum macroalgae, when washed up onto beaches, affects the incubation environment of sea turtle eggs. With so much Sargassum inundating shorelines in the Tropical North Atlantic, and given that incubation temperatures affect hatchling sex and survival, we hope our results can provide useful information to researchers and nesting beach managers in the region. Big thanks to my coauthors Dr. Kevin Gross and Dr. Seth Stapleton!
