Reporting by Helen Hill for the MIT Darwin Project
The fourth Workshop on Trait-Based Approaches to Ocean Life, held August 18-21, 2019 at Chicheley Hall in Buckinghamshire in the UK was a wonderful opportunity for Darwin Group members to catch up with former colleagues while sharing current directions in marine ecology viewed through a traits lens.
Prestigious fellowship provides funding to pursue research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology.
