About Robert Steneck

I study the structure and function of coastal marine ecosystems. My laboratories are in the Gulf of Maine and Caribbean. My students and I study organisms import to these ecosystems and the people who depend on them. Specifically, in Maine I've explored kelp forests ecosystems for over 20 years learning about lobsters, sea urchins and fish stocks in this region. I also have worked extensively throughout the Caribbean and tropical Pacific studying coral reef from both biological and geological perspectives.
