Solange Duhamel

The Duhamel Lab for marine microbiology & biogeochemistry specializes in the abundance, diversity & activity of aquatic microbes in the ocean, as well as in lakes, rivers, & wetland ecosystems.

Specifically, we study the role of microorganisms as agents of biogeochemical transformations, and how microbes adapt to different environments. In particular, we are interested in the effects of climate and nutrient availability on the distribution, growth and productivity of microplankton but also in the potential of life to adapt to extreme environments and the implications for life elsewhere.
