Dr. Xiaolin Chen has a first paper on her PhD research in plant toxicology accepted for publication in the journal “Aquatic Toxicology”. The title of Xiaolin’s paper is “The toxicity of Zinc-Oxide nanoparticles to Lemna minor (L.) is predominantly caused by dissolved Zinc”.
A new page has been added to the site where we share observations relating to the plant world. Not necessarily scientifically researched, the topics will be varied and are chosen purely because they interest me.
Congratulations to Neil Coughlan who submitted his MSc thesis to the UCC graduate school on 8 January 2016. The title of his thesis is “Up, up and away: bird-mediated epizoochorous dispersal, an overlooked link between aquatic environments”.
Neil was jointly supervised by Dr. Tom Kelly and Prof. Marcel Jansen.
The central focus of Neil’s MSc work was bird-mediated, epizoochorous dispersal of aquatic plants. To ascertain whether aquatic plants entangled between bird feathers can be dispersed by birds, Neil analysed the microclimate between the feathers, and assessed the likelihood of plant survival under these conditions.
