About the Scientist
Myrna Jacobson Meyers is a biogeochemist interested in adaptive physiology in marine systems. She studies sediment/rock/plant exoenzyme systems and nutrient biogeochemisty focusing on adaptations in environments with nutrient limitation (which also includes eutrophic environments). She has worked in mangrove, deep sea, intertidal, and subtidal environments. She is currently focused on using a hierarchy of indicators in concert to measure ecosystem response to change on a number of temporal and spatial scales. In addition, in conjunction with the John Hench School of Cinematic Arts, she produces animations describing fundamental biological principals, and teaches how to communicate science using learner centered learning techniques.
