ACER is pleased to release the 6th publication of our Factsheet Series focused on our Microplankton subgroup. The Microplankton team is lead by Dr. Jeff Krause and is investigating how small plankton (from 0.02 -0.2 mm in size) are affected by oiling and oiling response (e.g. the use of dispersants).
They are examining how the planktonic community changes in the presence of these petrochemicals, how it may affect their daily activity and how it may affect their role in the food web. Check out this and all ACER’s factsheets here.
