I'm a non-practicing microbiologist (I work as a Software Engineer), and I
was at home the other day thinking as I made dinner. I did some work with
Dr. Tom Chrzanowski and Dr. Robert Sterner at UT Arlington along with Dr.
Jim Elser from ASU, mostly nutrient recycling and stuff modelled after
Anyway I thought that it might be a good project for an undergrad research
topic to study the effects of garbage disposals on microplanktonic
populations in fresh water ecosystems. I don't know how much if any work
has been done on this. but when I left school, there seemed to be a lot of
interest in nutrient cycles.
