University of Delaware marine scientist Danielle Dixson has the next five years of research pretty well covered: She recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) award of $750,000 to study climate change’s affect on the symbiotic relationship between clownfish and sea anemones.

From UDaily:

Until now, most climate change studies have focused on understanding the effect that one aspect of climate change has on a single species, for example, how temperature affects coral. By considering the relationships and interactions between animals rather than looking at one species in particular, Dixson hopes to better understand the interactive effect, as well as the individual effects themselves.

In addition to her position as an assistant professor in UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment’s School of Marine Science and Policy, Dixson is also the author of a series of children’s books called Sea Stories. As part of the award, she will continue to develop books for young children based on her research.
