BAHS students shine at the annual meeting of the Society for Freshwater Science

Jennifer Tuomisto, a Biology graduate student, and Aaron Gordon-Weaver, a senior Environmental Biology major, recently presented research results at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Freshwater Science in Raleigh, North Carolina. This conference is typically attended by approximately 1000 freshwater scientists from around the world.  Jennifer gave an oral presentation entitled “Effect of temporal changes in phosphorus supply on stream biofilms and phosphorus limitation indicators” and Aaron gave a poster presentation entitled “Response of stream biofilms to pulsed versus steady-state phosphorous additions”.  Both are students of Dr. Steven Rier who heard a number of positive comments from his colleagues on the quality of both presentations.
