Kevin Wang and I have gotten a new internal grant to determine how bioavailable “dissolved” phosphorus in aquaculture ponds really is. We think we might be over-estimating the actual amount of orthophosphate that is available for phytoplankton by using ~1um glass-fiber filters when processing samples.
I just got back from a nice trip to Qui Nhon, Vietnam, to present some of the lab’s research on algal blooms as part of a workshop on environmental pollution. This was my first long distance trip since covid and glad to have had the opportunity to meet scientists from around the world. Eating awesome Vietnamese food was a bonus. The beautiful dogs and cats were spectacular.
Matt, Ansley (Kevin Wang’s lab), and I made a quick run to beautiful Fayetteville, Arkansas, to share our research at the Arkansas Water Resources and Watersheds Conference organized by Brian Haggard. We had a wonderful time. The best part of the trip was seeing my past student, Brie Olsen, who is running Arkansas’ Harmful Algal Bloom program.
Thuane’s class project has been published in Energies! Congratulations, Thuane. This is the 50th publication from my Meta-analysis class. Incredible testament to my awesome students.

Justin Havird’s Hawaiian anchialine shrimp manuscript was just accepted at Limnology and Oceanography. This is one of the most complex and thorough projects I haver ever been connected with. Nice job, Justin.

Mario Barros, a past visiting researcher from Brazil, stopped by the lab on his way to the Toxic Cyanobacterial Conference. We miss you, Mario!
