How cross-site experiments shed new light on bacteria & fungi in boreal forest
12:00 PM until 1:00 PM
Prof. Stephanie A. Yarwood of the University of Maryland/College Park Dept. of Environmental Science and Technology will present "How cross-site experiments shed new light on bacteria and fungi in the boreal forest." Everyone is welcome. Yarwood heads the UMCP Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemistry Lab, which is dedicated to understanding how microbial community composition has an impact on biogeochemical processing and influences the resilience and resistance ecosystem functions. Her research applies molecular methods, such as sequencing of DNA and RNA, to examine microbial communities, and then pairs those observations with measures of activity, such as enzyme assays, stable isotope tracing, and in situ response, in order to shed light on the role of microbes in mediating key natural process.
The LSSU Political Science Club, the Political Science Senior Seminar students, and Dr. Gary Johnson invite you to attend presentations of Political Science senior theses in the Walker Cisler Center. There will be an opportunity to ask questions following each presentation. A brief reception with refreshments will take place after each day's presentations. A full schedule and presenter information is at http://hermes.lssu.edu/~jshibley/PoliSci2014.pdf
