Dr. Scott Saleska Methane, microbes, and permafrost: Can genome-scale resolution improve earth system models of climate change?

14h à 15h30

Le séminaire du Dr. Scott Saleska (Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology,
University of Arizona) aura lieu dans l’ amphi Curien, PSL, 62 bis rue Gay Lussac 75005 Paris

Dr. Saleska is Director of the Arizona Ecosystem Genomics Institute ( His research focuses on biogeochemical ecology, asking questions about how climate interacts with plant physiology, demography, and ecological processes to influence or control biogeochemical cycling from local to global scales.
