Last week, Earth & Environment Associate Professor Robinson “Wally” Fulweiler was in Portland Oregon attending the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting 2014.

The meetings held May 18th to 23rd focused on the topics of “Bridging genes to ecosystems: aquatic science at a time of rapid change.

During the event, Fulweiler co-chaired a session titled “We’ve got a nitrogen fixation! Exploring, integrating, and understanding N fixation along the freshwater to marine continuum.”

At the session she co-chaired, Fulweiler delivered a talk titled¬†“The observer effect: quantifying the impact of the acetylene reduction assay on marine sediment n-fixers.”

Additionally, along with five other authors including past and present BU alums,¬†Fulweiler co-authored a talk titled “Sediment N2 production from shore to shelf–a methods comparison.” It was delivered at the session titled, “Nitrogen transformation mechanisms at the sediment-water-interface in aquatic ecosystems over a range of latitudes,” a session chaired by lead author of the talk, Amber Hardison of the University of Texas Marine Science Institute.
