Yay! We just submitted our paper entitled “Large seasonal and spatial variation in phytoplankton diversity, abundance, and carbon biomass across contrasting ecosystems”.
We (Fabian Roger, Lars Gamfeldt) organised a working group on biodiversity and multifunctionality in Lund, Sweden. The workshop, which was funded through BECC, involved Caroline Brophy, Pete Manning, Eleanor Slade, Yann Hautier, Sebastian Meyer, Nicolas Fanin, James Hagan, Fabian Roger and Lars Gamfeldt.
Screening islands in the archipelago outside Tjärnö Marine Laboratory for potential rock pools to use in a biodiversity-function-scale project.
Happy to announce that James Hagan will start as PhD student this coming summer. James is from Cape Town, South Africa, and did his Master’s in the Erasmus Mundus Masters Course in Tropical Biodiversity and Ecosystems (Tropimundo). He will work with questions relating to the causes and consequences of biodiversity loss, probably using rock pools as model system. You can find James on Twitter: @James_G_Hagan
