Abstract:

My long-term goal is to contribute to our understanding of factors that determine the distribution and productivity of individual phytoplankton taxa. I am particularly interested in the way that evolutionary diversification in the architecture and pigment organization of different phytoplankton groups influences their distribution among different optical environments. To this end, I have been working with experts in remote sensing and ocean optics toward the development of an optical biogeography for marine picophytoplankton, focusing on different spectral forms of marine Synechococcus and Prochlorococcus.
