Anaerobic Microorganisms & Applications In Environmental Science

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Matthew Kirk, associate professor of geology, will give a public lecture on how microorganisms are key drivers of global biogeochemical cycles and their activities influence animal and plant health, agriculture, the quality of water and soil resources, the composition of the atmosphere and more. Kirk will discuss his recent research on environmental factors that influence microbial respiration in anoxic environments and illustrate how his findings can be used to improve environmental quality.
This talk is being presented for students participating in the capstone course of the natural resources and environmental science secondary major and is open to the general public as part of the NRES Seminar Series.
The secondary major and its seminar series are generously supported by the Office of the Provost, College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, and Department of Geography.
