Microplastics in Marine Mud

Ocean plastics present serious problems. Plastics choke and starve wildlife, pollute the water and degrade living conditions in coastal and island communities, introduce toxins into the marine food web that extend up to us in our seafood, damage fish stocks, and decrease overall ocean health. The “Great Pacific garbage patch” formed by the North Pacific…

Diazotrophs in the Arctic

Kendra Turk-Kubo’s research focuses on diazotrophs. Diazotrophs are microscopic organisms that have the special ability to fix nitrogen. They come in all shapes and sizes, as bacteria or archaea. Turk-Kubo talks about their individual characteristics with a fond familiarity – Trichodesmium, Nostoc, UCYN-A, Richiela, Nodularia, Crocosphaera – all diazotrophs she’s spent the last decade of…
