Fulbright award- Charleston Post and Courier

Erik Sotka, a biology professor at the College of Charleston, has received a 2010 Fulbright Senior Scholarship to conduct a study on marine ecosystems at the University of New South Wales in Australia. He will spend four months looking at the effect of warming seas on the ecosystems, in particular seaweed-herbivore interactions.

His study will focus on whether seaweeds and herbivores are capable of genetically adapting to predicted increases in seawater temperatures.
