SERL hosts Marianne Holmer from University of Southern Denmark
Marianne completed her MSc and Ph.D. at Odense University, Denmark. She is currently the Head of Department of Biology at University of Southern Denmark, having published 128 peer reviewed scientific publications, 1 book, 11 book chapters, 2 research reports, and 11 popular articles. Though her topics range from food sustainibility, aquaculture, marine plant ecology, and sediment biogeochemistry, she has greatly advanced the science regarding sulfide toxicity in seagrasses.
Marianne's talk, entitled "Sulfide toxicity in seagrasses: causes and consequences" is particularly important considering the recent seagrass die-off Florida Bay related to sulfide toxicity. See Marianne's website here.
