We're an international team of ecologists studying streams in the Hengill region of Iceland. Our research is focused on understanding the effects of global warming on stream food webs and ecosystem processes.
Breaking news! Brooke Weigel (one of our wonderful REU students) from St. Olaf College just completed a successful poster presentation at the annual Society of Freshwater Science meeting. This research - "Influence of temperature on benthic metabolism and nutrient uptake across a gradient of geothermally heated streams" was part of a collaboration with Adam Toomey (another wonderful REU student from Washington-Jefferson College) and other team members (Hood, Cross, Benstead, and Huryn, Junker, Nelson). Way to go!
Brooke was also highlighted on the front page of the St. Olaf College's website! See below.
