Career Corner – Take a break from your research to grow professionally

By Eilea Knotts A coffee corner is a great space for sharing personal stories, food, and drink to help us get to know one another and to build trust. It is a place to pick up bits and pieces of information that may informally provide the foundation to get things done later in our lives. These “corners” provide the perfect ...

Special Issue on Linking Metagenomics to Aquatic Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemical Cycles

A general aim of microbial ecology is to observe, understand, and predict the distribution and interactions of microorganisms in the context of environmental conditions. Taxonomic profiling of different microbial communities often reveals significant but unexplained variations across aquatic environments both in space and time. Functional differences among organisms are often invoked as an explanation; and variation in gene content (assessed ...

Special Issue on Microplastics in marine and freshwater organisms: Presence and potential effects

Microplastics and microfibers (hereafter referred to as “microplastics”) are a pressing threat to aquatic ecosystems and have been the topic of much recent research. This research has documented quantities and locations of microplastic accumulation in many marine and freshwater environments. However, an important emerging topic is the extent to which these microplastics are making their way into the aquatic organisms ...

ASLO Signs Letter Opposing Potential Trump Executive Order

by Teresa L. Curto, ASLO Executive Director; Mike Pace, ASLO President; Adrienne Sponberg, ASLO Director of Communications and Science   This week, ASLO joined over 125 scientific societies and journal publishers to respond to a rumored forthcoming Trump Administration executive order that would make all papers produced by federally funded research freely available upon publication. If implemented, this would completely eliminate the ...

Virtual Issue: Stable Isotopes in Limnology and Oceanography

By Marguerite A. Xenopoulos Conceptual diagram of the elements for which the most common stable isotopes are used in ecology. Stable isotope analysis is a common and extremely useful tool for studying aquatic ecosystems from single cells to whole ecosystems. Over 600 papers using stable isotope studies have been published in L&O over the past 60 years. These papers include studies ...
