YSI EXO Handheld Display: Dependable, Easy To Use

YSI has released a new EXO Handheld Display for use with its EXO Multi-Parameter Water Quality Sondes. The updated handheld integrates around four years of customer feedback for a solid device that adds a lot of utility and user-friendliness. The appearance of the device has undergone a dramatic update, as YSI engineers opted to swap out the previous handheld’s look for the highly ergonomic Pro Series body that many customers love. Possibly more important, though, is that the body is ultra-durable and has proven itself in tough field applications over the years. “These handhelds have been to the bottom of aeration tanks and dragged behind moving vehicles, yet kept on collecting quality data,” said Brandon Smith, YSI Sonde product manager.

Lake Malawi: A Treasure to Protect

Lake Malawi (also known as Lake Nyasa and Lake Niassa) doubles as a Rift Valley Lake and one of the seven African Great Lakes. Due to its unique biodiversity, it’s a great place to conduct limnological studies. Harvey Bootsma is a professor for the School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and has had an interest in limnology ever since he was a kid. Bootsma fondly recalls summer vacations to Georgian Bay, Ontario, “I probably spent as much time in the water as I did out of it.” He continues,”I remember telling myself ‘I’m going to get a job where I can stay here all the time.’” While Harvey didn’t end up working on Georgian Bay, he was offered a job working on Lake Malawi. He continued working there while completing his Ph.D.

Microbes and Human Health: Aquatic Microbial Communities May Hold Clues about How Deadly Pathogens Spread

Aquatic ecosystems are incredibly complex, with many different biotic and abiotic factors constantly interacting. Microbial communities are a key part of aquatic ecosystems, involved in the constant flow of energy and recycling of organic matter, according to Science Direct .  The true scope of microbial community impacts on aquatic ecosystems is still not entirely understood. Eric Benbow, a professor of community ecology at Michigan State University, is exploring how microbial communities and pathogens may be negatively impacting human health, and how a changing climate could worsen this problem.  How Do Pathogens Arise? Benbow, along with his students and colleagues, are studying a realm of community ecology that is still relatively unknown.
