We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher to work with Dr Ulisse Cardini and Dr Francesca Margiotta on "Spatial and temporal variability of gas fluxes and ratios in coastal marine ecosystems".
Read about our fieldwork experiments at Schiacchetiello, where we aimed to disentangle an intimate seagrass-sponge relationship.
We assessed the impact of zebra mussels on Nitrogen processes in laboratory incubations designed to discern the impact of the microbiome and to quantitatively assess their relevance at the benthic scale.
We demonstrate the importance of diazotrophs in sustaining primary productivity of the invasive marine plant Halophila stipulacea.
Using omics and stable isotopes, we show that the sulfur-oxidizing symbionts of invertebrate animals are also capable of nitrogen fixation.
We compiled a large dataset on C and N fluxes in a coral reef exposed to seasonality, and show that diazotrophs are key to ecosystem functioning.
