Yokota Lab’s microplastic paper selected among 20 top articles in 2016-17 by ASLO

The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) selected Yokota Lab’s 2017 Limnology and Oceanography Letters article “Finding the missing piece of the aquatic plastic pollution puzzle: Interaction between primary producers and microplastics” as one of the 20 outstanding articles published in the ASLO journal portfolio in 2016-17.

ASLO currently publishes four journals: Limnology and Oceanography, Limnology and Oceanography Methods, Limnology and Oceanography Letters, and Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin.

The article was co-authored by Kiyoko Yokota (Associate Prof. of Biology); Holly Waterfield (Research Support Specialist, Biological Field Station [BFS]); Cody Hastings, Emily Davidson (Parry), and Britney Wells (former BFS summer interns); and Ed Kwietniewski (former graduate research assistant). The research project was entirely supported by internal resources within SUNY Oneonta, including the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Faculty Research Grant awards to Yokota.

Yokota has been invited to present in a special session “Author spotlight: recent high-impact authors from the ASLO journals” at the upcoming 2019 ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting.
