Stephanie Kivlin, associate professor in the UT Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, will present “Microbial Responses in a Changing World” Friday, Nov. 17 at noon via Zoom.
Environmental microorganisms control the pivotal carbon and nutrient cycles that maintain plant growth and provide resources for human consumption. However, these microbial communities are imperiled by global change, such as drought and invasive plant species. In her presentation, Associate Professor Kivlin will showcase several key case studies of how wild microbiomes are impacted by global change and how we can create resilient microbiomes that will persist in these changing environments.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Once registered, you will receive an email with information about joining the meeting via Zoom.
