How cross-site experiments shed new light on bacteria & fungi in boreal forest April 16th, 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM
Organization
Description

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.
