Arley Muth, M.Sc. has published an article in the Ecological Society of America journal regarding, Recruitment tolerance to increased temperature present across multiple kelp clades. The paper also includes SJSU/MLML phycology professor, Dr. Mike Graham, Muth's former advisor as one of the co-authors. The researchers investigated twelve eastern Pacific kelp taxa and how their sporophyte production would be affected by changes in nitrate and temperature so as to determine the limiting factors for recruitment. Since graduating from SJSU/MLML, Arley Muth, is now pursuing her PhD at The University of Texas at Austin.
