Allochthonous OM Utilization in Aquatic Organisms–Amber Bellamy

Amber Bellamy and another researcherAmber Bellamy’s research project examined whether or not aquatic organisms are utilizing allochthonous organic matter, including thermogenic methane, kerogen and other petrogenic materials.  She would also like to determine what, if any, human activities and natural processes can cause these aged materials to become available to freshwater food webs.
