Martin Award from the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO). The yearly award recognizes one paper that has contributed to shifts in research focus and interpretations of previous observations. Hutchins’ paper, “Iron-limited diatom growth and Si:N uptake ratios in a coastal upwelling regime,” co-authored with Kenneth Bruland of the University of California, Santa Cruz, highlights how iron availability shapes marine coastal plankton communities. The paper will be recognized at the ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting in June. (4/3/23)
