One of my research interests is to assess mcirobial diversity in freshwater systems and to correlate changes in microbial diversity with environmental and biological characteristics of the water. Our publications in this area are as follows:Newton, R.J., A.D. Kent, E.W. Triplett, and K.D. McMahon. 2006. Microbial community dynamics in a humic lake: differential persistence of common freshwater phylotypes. Environ. Microbiol. 8:956-970.Lau, H.-T., J. Faryna, and E.W. Triplett. 2006.
