Microbial Ecology. Microbial trophodynamics, ranging from bacterial activities to the feeding selectivity of protozoa, and to the relationships of microbes with higher level mesozooplankton and biogeochemistry.  Utilizing molecular tools to explore microeucaryote diversity in a functional and ecological context
