Linda McCann
Marine Biologist @Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
Linda McCann is a marine biologist with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. Based at SERC’s Marine Invasions Lab located on San Francisco Bay, Linda studies non-native (species that move from their place of origin to establish in new areas) and invasive (species that have negative impacts in their new homes) species in marine coastal ecosystems. Beginning in Chesapeake Bay at SERC’s East Coast lab, Linda has over 25 years of experience in invasive species research, exploring patterns in species distributions, impacts of invasives on native species, and working to predict community structure in changing conditions. Her main focus has been on the ‘moss animals’ or bryozoans- tiny, colonial animals that inhabit shallow waters of the sea. Linda’s work has taken her from the Galapagos to the Bering Sea, Australia and Panama, to try to piece together how marine invertebrates in all of these places are different, how they are the same, and how they are changing through time.
