Monday 09 January 2017

A new small grant award to Katy Roucoux and Jaime Toney (Glasgow) from SAGES will fund analysis of Amazonian peat samples at the Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science (BECS) Laboratory, University of Glasgow.

The analyses will facilitate a pilot study into the potential use of biomarkers as indicators of long-term changes in the ecology, hydrology and carbon cycling of lowland tropical peatland ecosystems.
