Welcome Attleboro

A big welcome to Attleboro High School’s AP Biology (I presume MA). There instructor, Mr. Lemire, linked to DSN from the course blog. Students please feel free to post comments and ask questions. Peter and I (and the other bloggers here at Sb) will be happy to answer your questions. For Peter and I, you may want to keep them ocean or biology related otherwise you will never know what kind of answer you wil get!

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, a National Science Foundation supported initiative. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web. His forthcoming book, Science of the South (http://www.scienceofthesouth.com/), connects cultural icons of South such as pecan pie with the science behind them.

  1. Thanks for the welcome! I was very suprised to find our class mentioned here. I hope my students take the time to wander this way – so much interesting information over here and other blogs at SB. We have so much to cover in class that a lot of the really cool “side” material has to be left behind, so I started the blog to help fill in some of the gaps. Anyways, thanks again!

    And yes, we’re in Massachusetts.

  2. Thanks for inviting us to ask questions and such. I appreciate it. I’m pretty much the biggest nerd in Mr. Lemire’s class and I check your blog and our blog out like 3 times a week. So hopefully this will be a good relationship between us.
