Biodiversity paper in Nature Communications

We just got a biodiversity-related paper published in Nature Communications. We manipulate nutrient enrichment in aquatic microcosms in subtropical and subarctic mountain regions (China and Norway, respectively) in 2013, and show the interactive effects of temperature and nutrients on microbial diversity along mountain elevation gradients. This [...] Read more

Streams in Iceland

We sampled streams across Iceland this summer. We experienced the unique weather (e.g., strong wind and raining almost every day) and gravel roads without bridges. But the stunning Icelandic nature and the breathtaking beauty of the rugged landscape went though the whole trip. Looking for sampling sites made us to discover somewhere beautiful and [...] Read more

Elevational patterns of biodiversity

We just got a paper on-line, which is about the elevational patterns of microbial biodiversity (Wang et al, In press). In this paper, we sampled six streams for bacteria and diatoms along mountainsides in three regions: one stream in (1) the Balggesvarri Mountain in Norway in 2012, one stream in (2) the Pyrenees Mountain in Spain in 2012, and four [...] Read more

ESA's Centennial at Baltimore

It's the third time for me to attend the ESA annual meeting. As usual, it was a great moment to meet friends. I got one day trip to Potomac River on Saturday and one day workshop on Big Data Analyses on Sunday. In the Monday afternoon, I had my presentation on elevational diversity patterns on aquatic microbes. In the other days, I can easily find [...] Read more

Lakes in Northern Norway and Finland

In July-August, we sampled small lakes from Northern Norway and Finland. These lakes are covering elevational gradients from 0 to over 1,000 m, with clear changes in temperature. The lakes on high elevations were partly covered by snow during the sampling period. It would be interesting to see how the physicochemical and biological changes from the [...] Read more
