Nitrogen, a major plant nutrient, is transformed from one form to another by microorganisms, and moves between habitats.

MARINE MICROBIAL ECOLOGY GROUP

We filmed on location with the Marine Microbial Ecology Group based out of UCSC to create a film and photographic essay showcasing the lab and current research. Their laboratory focuses on how microorganisms control the availability of nitrogen, a critical element in all life as we know it. The lab’s research was highlighted and featured in a recent issue of Science Magazine.

This marine alga is the first known eukaryote to pull nitrogen from air.

Until now, the only “nitrogen-fixing” organisms were thought to be prokaryotes such as bacteria
