Supported by the Miguel(s)' team, I went around the peninsula twice from April to June, and easily caught the shining sun, rain, snow and hailstone. We finally managed to perform the field microcosm experiments similar to our [...] Read more

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
