Microbial conversions of nitrate. Study identifies controls of the nitrogen cycle.

Microbial nitrate reduction can follow different pathways. One pathway produces dinitrogen gas, with nitrous oxide as a side product, the other route results in the production of ammonium, a nutrient for e.g. algae, plants and agricultural crops.

A team of researchers from Germany, the US, Canada and The Netherlands, have identified three factors that determine the end product of microbial nitrate reduction in natural environments. The outcomes of this research are important for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and for improving agricultural fertilizer application.

250.000 euro for behavioural biologist

Knowledge in an uncertain world

Dr. Kimberley Mathot from the NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research has received a Veni grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Mathot will use the Veni grant of 250.000 euro for research on how and why individual red knots differ in the way they invest in information and the consequences of such differences for foraging and migration behaviour.
