Life on ice: Microbial attack on glaciers
Prof Alex Anesio
Reception Room, Wills Memorial Building, Queen's Road, BS8 1RJ
It is now recognised that large expanses of ice in the polar regions are inhabited by active microbial communities forming one of the biomes of Earth. Microbes on ice are diverse, play an important role in the cycling of nutrients and can even modify the physical environment they live.
This inaugural lecture will be given by Prof Alex Anesio.
This event is organised by the Public and Ceremonial Events Office.
