Hidden Biodiversity: Microbes in the Damariscotta River Estuary presented by Rachel Presley, Ph.D. candidate in oceanography.
When asked about her work Rachel said, “I study tiny organisms that live in the water and mud in Damariscotta Lake and the Damariscotta River estuary. I want to know which microbes are present and where, how they make a living, and how that affects the environment. It is neat how such small creatures can create complex networks and relationships in a small area. I think it is interesting how these small organisms have a large impact on the environment, which affects us as humans.”
