Recently published Topics in BioScience: Cell Biology and Eukaryotic Protists features break-through papers in Cellular Biology and Eukaryotic Protists. FIU's own Dr. Laurie Richardson is a contributor to the book with her paper "Remote Sensing of Algal Bloom Dynamics." A member of the Department of Biological Sciences, Dr. Richardson's current research program is focused on the microbiology, microbial ecology, and molecular microbial ecology of coral diseases on reefs of the Caribbean. This work involves laboratory studies of coral-associated microorganisms as well as scientific diving research on coral reef health. Congratulations Dr. Richardson!
