Will Ambrose – Marine Ecology

Dr. Will Ambrose

Ambrose, William G., Jr

Professor Emeritus of Biology

Ph.D. in Marine Sciences, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

NOTE: Professor Ambrose is on sabbatical leave for the 2018-19 AY and will not be returning to Bates.

Professor Ambrose’s research interests focus on understanding processes influencing the structure and function of marine benthic communities. He is particularly interested in how benthic communities might respond to climate change. He also uses the environmental information stored in the hard parts of marine organisms to reconstruct past environments and examine Holocene climate change. His current research also involves invertebrate fisheries biology, focusing on clams and bait worms. His field work takes place in Maine and across the arctic and subarctic.
