Temperature Acclimation Constraints on Microorganisms in Freshwater Ecosystems: Implications for a Warming World
Name of Award
Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant
Jill Welter, Associate Professor of Biology, received a $7,500 Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant to support a two-week January sampling expedition to Iceland to collect unprecedented data under winter conditions that will help determine how much new nitrogen is entering these ecosystems under cold and dark conditions that are characteristic of arctic regions and how both cold and warm-adapted species respond to winter conditions.
