Microalgea Movement

Airborne dispersal of microalgae has largely been a blind spot in environmental biological studies because of their low concentration in the atmosphere and the technical limitations in investigating microalgae from air samples. However, recent studies show that airborne microalgae can survive air transportation and interact with the environment.

In a new paper, former CAnMove postdoc, Sylvie Tesson and collegues present a minireview of these recent studies and traces the possible route from established ecosystems to new habitats through air transportation over a variety of geographic scales.

To the paper "Airborne microalgae: new insights, opportunities and challenges" in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
