My research aims to understand the potential behavioral changes that the American lobster may experience as a result of ocean acidification and ocean warming. The predatory and anti-predatory behavior of the American lobster will be observed and tested at varying levels of temperature and pH. These altered behaviors will then be used to demonstrate potential effects on trophic interactions and their corresponding cascading effects for the ecosystem.
