Research Interests
Julie Schram is primarily an integrative marine invertebrate zoologist and is interested in how marine invertebrates acclimate to changes in their environments within the finite limits of energy acquisition, metabolism, defense, growth, and subsequent trophic transfer. Recently, she has investigated the sub-lethal impacts of ocean warming and acidification on marine benthic mesograzers of the central western Antarctic Peninsula and used lipid based trophic biomarkers to investigate food web relationships along the western Antarctic Peninsula and in several Pacific coast systems from Alaska to the southern Oregon Coast.
