Welcome to Duke's "Aquaterrestrial Biogeochemistry" Lab
Congrats to Raven Bier who was just awarded a 2014 EPA STAR Fellowship!
Bernhardt lab attends the 2014 Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Portland, OR in force, giving 5 talks and 3 posters reporting our research on how nanomaterials, mountaintop mining, and watershed urbanization are altering the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems.
