New publication in Frontiers in Marine Science!

May 18, 2022

Our second publication investigating the protistan communities in the Galápagos Archipelago was published recently in Frontiers in Marine Sciences.  Former post-doc Se Hyeon jang led this effort to examine how environmental conditions influence marine protists with an emphasis on the micrograzer communities.  We also report observation from a red tide bloom in Elizabeth Bay, Isabela Island.  A bloom of the dinoflagellate Scripsiella lachrymosa was being actively grazed by another dinoflagellate, Polykrikos kofoidii.
