Resolving the effects of resource availability, predation and competition on brown tide dynamics using metatranscriptomics

Lead PI: Sonya Dyhrman , Christopher Gobler

Unit Affiliation: Biology and Paleo Environment, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

September 2015 - August 2019
Long Island Sound ; Palisades, NY ; Stony Brook, NY
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: This project builds off previous work on HABs in Long Island Sound. It will profile the eco-transcriptomic response of Aureococcus and co-occuring phytoplankton over the couse of a brown tide to identify drivers of blooms. This work will be used to inform local and regional managers of potential management targets.
