Please join us for the following AOS Seminar Thursday, January 31 at 4:00pm in Spiess Hall 330:
Speaker: Katherine RM Mackey, University of California Irvine
Title: "Methodologies for understanding phytoplankton responses to global environmental change"
Marine phytoplankton do half of all photosynthesis on Earth and directly influence global biogeochemical cycles and climate, yet how they will respond to future global change is unknown. In this talk, Mackey will introduce some of the research methodologies she has applied to address questions about how global change affects phytoplankton, as well as some of the emerging approaches scientists are using to understand multi-stressor responses. The direct and indirect effects of temperature, eutrophication, and ocean acidification will be discussed.
Snacks and refreshments will be available at 4:00 pm. Please bring your own cup.
