Together with Bob Sterner, Jim Cotner, Jim Elser, and Dedmer van de Waal, I am editing a special issue/research topic in Frontiers. The topic is: "Progress in Ecological Stoichiometry". I encourage everyone to submit abstracts to this research topic (deadline 8/31). Our lab has submitted two so far.
Please check out the nice study by Johann Lopez (ex-undergraduate student and graduate student in ESS) and Nathan Garcia published in J. Plankton Research. They beautifully show how the elemental content and ratios vary between day and night. They subsequently collaborated with David Talmy at MIT and together they built a great model showing how Synechococcus purge carbon at the end of the dark cycle - presumably to stay small.
With so much attention on California’s drought and the incoming El Niño, the anomalies in California’s warmer ocean temperatures may simply seem like something to enjoy. Surfers and swimmers rejoice as they jump in with a wetsuit-free splash. Reminiscent of tropical beaches, Southern California’s ocean temperatures have been unusually tepid.
Celine Mouginot, Nathan Garcia, Jessica Ooquist, and Adam Martiny are currently participating in a 4 week research cruise from Maine to the Labrador Sea and then down to Bermuda. This cruise is done in collaboration with Mike Lomas and his group from Bigelow to understand variations in the elemental stoichiometry of marine microbial communities. Other participants on the cruise come from University of Maine, and University of Copenhagen (Lasse Riemann's group). We will all return to Irvine mid-September.
