Shifts in coastal Antarctic marine microbial communities during and after melt water-related surface stratification

first_imgAntarctic coastal waters undergo major physical alterations during summer. Increased temperatures induce sea-ice melting and glacial melt water input, leading to strong stratification of the upper water column. We investigated the composition of micro-eukaryotic and bacterial communities in Ryder Bay, Antarctic Peninsula, during and after summertime melt water stratification, applying community fingerprinting (denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis) and sequencing analysis of partial 18S and 16S rRNA genes. Community fingerprinting of the eukaryotic community revealed two major patterns, coinciding with a period of melt water stratification, followed by a period characterized by regular wind-induced breakdown of surface stratification. During the first stratified period, we observed depth-related differences in eukaryotic fingerprints while differences in bacterial fingerprints were weak. Wind-induced breakdown of the melt water layer caused a shift in the eukaryotic community from an Actinocyclus sp.- to a Thalassiosira sp.-dominated community. In addition, a distinct transition in the bacterial community was found, but with a few days’ delay, suggesting a response to the changes in the eukaryotic community rather than to the mixing event itself. Sequence analysis revealed a shift from an Alpha- and Gammaproteobacteria to a Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides-dominated community under mixed conditions. Our results show that melt water stratification and the transition to nonstabilized Antarctic surface waters may have an impact not only on micro-eukaryotic but also bacterial community composition.last_img read more

The Grateful Dead Once Welcomed Allman Brothers Members For A 33-Minute “Lovelight” [Listen]

first_imgToday has been a difficult day for music fans, as legendary drummer Butch Trucks passed away last night. Trucks was a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, and worked as a musician for over 50 years. He will be missed.Music heals all wounds, and today we’re looking back at moments in Trucks’ life to celebrate his legacy. One such moment came in 1970, at the height of the Allman Brothers’ early career. The year was also a highlight for the Grateful Dead, as both bands (promoted by Bill Graham) continued to come into their own as jam-rock staples. The two bands wound up on the same bill at the famed Fillmore East on February 11th, 1970, and the Dead called on members of the Allmans and Fleetwood Mac for the occasion.Towards the end of the show, the Dead welcomed up Peter Green, Duane Allman, Mick Fleetwood, Danny Kirwan, Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks & Berry Oakley for a segment that included “Dark Star” into “Spanish Jam” into “Turn On Your Lovelight.” This was an all-time version of “Lovelight,” clocking in at over 33 minutes for a wild bluesy celebration.Wrote Phil Lesh in his book, “It’s a surprisingly coherent free-for-all, with five guitarists , four drummers, organ, and — Pigpen roaring over it all” Berry Oakley takes over on bass about halfway through Lovelight as Phil just wants to listen. “My mind starts to stretch out of shape… Everyone on stage is flat-out wailing” After the show, “I walk outside — it’s daylight, and snow is falling gently on the streets of New York… I grab Bob and Jerry in a group embrace: This is what it’s all about.”Check out the full show audio below, transferred onto by Darrin Sacks.RIP, Butch.last_img read more
