Associate Scientific Editor April Pawluk was in the midst of a traditional academic research path when she realized that her true calling was in the world of scientific publication and not at a lab bench in Berkeley. Now she’s flourishing at Cell Press, helping to shape and facilitate the vast landscape of communicating novel scientific discoveries.

The role of dams and the nearshore zone on phosphorus flows along the river-lake interface

With continued concern for eutrophication in the lower Great Lakes, scientists, government and stakeholders continue to work together towards effective management solutions. In these freshwater systems, phosphorus is a main driver of algal blooms. Our ability to manage phosphorus in these systems to improve water quality is limited by our understanding of phosphorus flows and cycling along rivers and into large lakes.
