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 by metagenomics) often reveals dynamic relationships between metabolic pathways and …

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 that inhabit these environments and the potential consequences of their …

Writing Effective Abstracts and Summaries Webinar

by Adrienne Sponberg   One of my favorite things about ASLO is the way the society values participation by early career researchers and students (watch for an upcoming post on this!). This month, two of our programs for early career students collaborated on a recent webinar. The webinar was sponsored by the NSF-funded Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange (LOREX) program. LOREX provides training in international research collaboration for graduate students. …

Announcing the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange program

ASLO is pleased to announce a new NSF-funded initiative: the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange (LOREX) program. As all ASLO members are keenly aware, water bodies often span multiple political boundaries, so international collaboration in the aquatic sciences is a must. However, formal training to prepare the next generation of scientists for such activities is not widely available. The LOREX program aims to fill that gap. The ASLO LOREX program will …

Creating and maintaining a welcoming atmosphere for all in the aquatic sciences

By James Elser, Past-President (ASLO) The issue of sexual harassment and other forms of sexual misconduct is much in the news these days, including in the sciences.  Two years ago as President, I began a proactive process to address these issues in the aquatic sciences, motivated especially by the occurrence of sexual misconduct at field stations and on research vessels.  Joined by then President-elect Duguay, the effort was broadened to include development …
