Welcome to the UNH Phyto Lab!



All microorganisms must die.

The research in the UNH Phyto Lab focuses on elucidating the mechanisms that mediate associations between marine microbes, with a focus on understanding interactions that result in microbial mortality. Our work involves an integrated approach — from molecules to ecosystems — to recognize the mechanisms underlying shifts in phytoplankton population dynamics and primary productivity, and ultimately, to better understand biogeochemical cycles and food web structure in the ocean.
