Congratulations to Keely MacNeil who was awarded a travel stipend for her presentation "N:P as driver of As retention" at the ASLO Summer Meeting 2018 featuring our AquaFluor Handheld Fluorometer.
Arsenic (As), a toxic trace element, can be taken into cells in place of phosphorus (P) and decouple phosphorylation, hindering energy production. Organisms take up more As when P is low, and our research shows that microbial As uptake depends on relative nitrogen (N:P), not...

Benthic Algae Nutrient Limitation Along an Elevation Gradient in the Poudre Watershed, Colorado Benthic algae are important primary producers in lotic ecosystems, but excess algae can harm aquatic communities. Identifying factors that modulate algal nutrient limitation is critical for effective stream management. In summer 2015, vials filled with nutrient-diffusing agar (N, P, N+P, Control) were deployed in seven Colorado mountain streams, spanning an elevation...
The Department of Ecology & Evolution at Stony Brook University is located on Long Island, NY. It was founded in 1969 and is one of the first departments of its kind in the world. The department is home to approximately 18 faculty, 50 PhD students, and over a dozen masters students.
“Duckweed” is the common name for a number of species (e.g., Lemna sp., Spirodela sp., Wolffia sp.) of tiny plants that float directly on the surface of freshwater lakes and ponds. The rapid grow...
