Wally Fulweiler attends, chairs session at Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting
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.
