Perry’s Research Makes NSF List of Ocean Facts

Mary Jane Perry’s research was included in a list of 10 things people might not know about the ocean that the National Science Foundation compiled in celebration of World Oceans Day on June 8. Perry is interim director of the Darling Marine Center and professor in the School of Marine Sciences. Her research appears as No. 5 on the list: “Just as crocus and daffodil blossoms signal the start of a warmer season on land… a massive bloom of microscopic plants unfolds each spring in the North Atlantic Ocean from Bermuda to the Arctic.”
