MTRI Sit Back Seminar: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Microscopic Universe Under the Sea

April 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

When you think of ocean ecosystems, you likely think of fish, seaweed, whales, dolphins, lobsters, or other large species! But Rebecca Stevens-Green, PhD Candidate at Dalhousie University, is thinking about what she sees under the microscope, phytoplankton! Phytoplankton are the building blocks of marine ecosystems. They form the basis of the food chain and play a role in our climate by sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transporting it to the deep ocean. Join us and Rebecca for our Sit Back Seminar on April 27 from 7-8 p.m. for a talk on the importance of these tiny “bugs”, how they take up carbon dioxide and how we study the things we can’t see!


To join our seminar, you can register here or join our Facebook live stream.
