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 …

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 current 12-month embargo period whereby papers are behind a paywall. …

A Virtual Issue on the Remote Sensing of Oceans, Estuaries, and Lakes

By Paul F. Kemp Oceans, Lakes, and Inland Seas: A Virtual Issue on the Remote Sensing of Oceans, Estuaries, and Lakes Since 1978, more than 85 articles have appeared in the Limnology and Oceanography family of journals describing the development and use of remote sensing tools to study processes in freshwater and marine systems. Remote sensing can be broadly defined as the use of drones, autonomous vehicles, moored instruments, sensors, satellites and …

What does it mean that Limnology & Oceanography: Letters is now indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index™ (ESCI)?

By Patricia Soranno, L&O: Letters ASLO’s newest journal has passed an important milestone! Limnology & Oceanography: Letters is now indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which is a new index (as of 2015) that is part of Clarivate’s Web of Science Databases. This is one of the first steps that a new journal must take on the road to getting a Journal Impact Factor and to being considered for indexing …

Virtual Issue: Stable Isotopes in Limnology and Oceanography

By Marguerite A. Xenopoulos 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 using stable isotopes as tracers of biological, geochemical and ecosystem processes, food web analyses, and work tracking animal movement. In more recent years, rapid progress in …

The Hawaii Ocean Time-series: 30th Anniversary Collection

By Marguerite Xenopoulos Thirty years ago, on October 30th, 1988, the first scientific cruise sailed to a deep-water subtropical station as part of the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program. On-going cruises to Station ALOHA (A Long-Term Oligotrophic Habitat Assessment; 22° 45’N, 158° 00’W) have been made since approximately at monthly intervals where repeated measurements of ocean physics, biogeochemistry and plankton ecology have occurred. This virtual issue contains a compilation of …

L&O Bulletin Chapter One Challenge: Call for Papers

Still haven’t published that first chapter of your dissertation that you worked so hard on? Eager to let your peers in those “other” sub disciplines of aquatic science know why what you study is so important, novel, and cutting-edge? Well here’s your chance! The editors of the L&O Bulletin invite you to submit a one paragraph summary of your first chapter (or whichever chapter is a review of your field!) and tell …

Cross peer review: what is it and how is it being used at Limnology & Oceanography: Letters?

By Laura J. Falkenberg One my central activities as a Raelyn Cole Editorial Fellow (more information on the fellowship can be found here) is to learn more about the editorial process. An obvious step towards this is to be involved as a peer reviewer. While I had reviewed for a range of journals in different sub-fields of biology and ecology before the fellowship (> 15 different titles), I hadn’t reviewed for Limnology …
