An experimental demonstration of the effect of competition on energy budgets

Post-doctoral fellow, Giulia Ghedini, and colleagues Craig White and Dustin Marshall are interested in whether feeding rates and metabolic rates change in the same way when population densities increase.

Net-energy gain in phytoplankton cells is dependent on cell size, light, and population density

Postdoc Martino Malerba and colleagues Craig White and Dustin Marshall investigate how size affects net-energy gain in single-celled phytoplankton species at different light intensities and population densities.

Mixing it up – methanotrophs use hydrogen as alternative energy source

Chris Greening has been working with international collaborators to provide evidence that aerobic methane-oxidising bacteria (methantrophs) are able to meet energy and biomass demands in variable environments, by using hydrogen as an alternative energy source.
