Campbell Lab

Research Facility



Campbell Lab
Mount Allison University
Sackville
New Brunswick (NB)

We study the ecophysiology of phytoplankton, with particular emphases on:

i) Photosystem II and the Photosystem II inactivation/regeneration cycle

ii) Resource allocations and analyses of the costs of growth and acclimation to environmental variation.

iii) New, integrative approaches to quantify and analyze these processes.
