We are pleased to announce our session “Phytoplankton: Are we all looking at it differently? Diverse methods and approaches to the study of marine phytoplankton” at the YOUMARES 2016 convention for young scientists and engineers, 11-13 September in Hamburg, Germany.
The call for abstracts for the YOUMARES 2016 is open: make sure to submit your abstract by 15 June 2016 if you are a young researcher (PhD, Master and Bachelor students). We are looking forward to know about your work and hope to see you in Hamburg!
Phytoplankton: Are we all looking at it differently? Diverse methods and approaches to the study of marine phytoplankton (Ingrid M. Angel Benavides and Larissa K. Schultze, Institute of Coastal Research, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht)
Phytoplankton not only forms the basis of the marine food chain, it also contributes largely to global oxygen production and atmospheric carbon fixation. Therefore, understanding phytoplankton biology and ecology, its role in biogeochemical cycles and its interactions with physical processes are major objectives for marine researchers. To tackle these problems a variety of methods are applied, including techniques for detection (e.g. optics) and species discrimination (e.g. microscopy), as well as numerical modelling. To promote interdisciplinary dialogue, we invite researches investigating any aspect of phytoplankton dynamics to share their work, focusing on the methodology used and its inherent advantages and limitations.
