Assessing Algal Community Structure and Nutrient Uptake Kinetics Across a Nutrient Gradient in Agricultural Streams
Streams provide important ecosystem services, such as the transformation of organic matter and water purification, while transporting water from headwaters to larger receiving waterbodies downstream. Excess nutrients introduced through anthropogenic land use put stress on aquatic ecosystems and...
Canada is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to mitigate the effects of global warming. A major source of GHG emissions is coal-based power generation. Replacing (fossil) coal with biomass-based feedstocks for the generation of electricity could help reduce these emissions....
Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Ascophyllum nodosum for the Co-Production of Biofuels and Value-Added Products
There has been an increasing interest in the use of biorefining feedstocks for the production of value-added products. Seaweeds are of special interest, due to the fact that they do not compete for land use with food crops, have low to no lignin content, and can be grown in waste water or at sea,...
Coral reefs are essential to the marine ecosystem, and provide some of the most diverse habitats in the world. Coral reef fisheries contribute 6.8 billion to the economy a year globally. However, coral reefs are under significant threat because of human activities such as overfishing, ocean...
Surface colonization is ubiquitous in marine environments, and bacteria are one of the first, or primary colonizers, to attach to newly formed surfaces. Marine algae are host to a plethora of such bacterial colonizers, one of the most abundant being roseobacters. Most of known pathogenic or...
