Spectroscopy Spotlight
Using Single-Cell Fluorescence to Track Phytoplankton Communities in the Ocean
The taxonomic composition of phytoplankton communities in the world’s oceans determines how carbon and other materials are cycled through these vast ecosystems. Micky Myrick and Tammi Richardson of the University of South Carolina have recently developed an instrument for the classification of phytoplankton taxa that has low power requirements and thus can be used at sea.
