A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. (2020)
Journal Article
Weldon, L., O'Leary, C., Steer, M., Newton, L., Macdonald, H., & Sargeant, S. (in press). A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. Environmental DNA, https://doi.org/10.1002/edn3.91

The European eel, Anguilla anguilla, is classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. To protect what remains of the European eel population, accurate monitoring methods for this species are important. Environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques are gaini...

Basin-scale variability of microbial methanol uptake in the Atlantic Ocean (2018)
Journal Article
Sargeant, S. L., Murrell, J. C., Nightingale, P. N., & Dixon, J. D. (2018). Basin-scale variability of microbial methanol uptake in the Atlantic Ocean. Biogeosciences, 15(16), 5155-5167. https://doi.org/10.5194/bg-15-5155-2018

© 2018 Author(s). Methanol is a climate-active gas and the most abundant oxygenated volatile organic compound (OVOC) in the atmosphere and seawater. Marine methylotrophs are aerobic bacteria that utilise methanol from seawater as a source of carbon (... Read More about Basin-scale variability of microbial methanol uptake in the Atlantic Ocean.

Seasonal variability in microbial methanol utilisation in coastal waters of the western English Channel (2016)
Journal Article
Sargeant, S. L., Sargeant, S., Murrell, J. C., Nightingale, P. D., & DIxon, J. L. (2016). Seasonal variability in microbial methanol utilisation in coastal waters of the western English Channel. Marine Ecology Progress Series, 550, 53-64. https://doi.org/10.3354/meps11705

© The authors 2016. Methanol is ubiquitous in seawater and is the most abundant oxygenated volatile organic compound (OVOC) in the atmosphere, where it influences oxidising capacity and ozone formation. Marine methylotrophic bacteria utilise methanol... Read More about Seasonal variability in microbial methanol utilisation in coastal waters of the western English Channel.

Microbial acetone oxidation in coastal seawater (2014)
Journal Article
Nightingale, P. D., Tarran, G. A., Sargeant, S. L., Dixon, J. L., Dixon, J., Beale, R., …Nightingale, P. (2014). Microbial acetone oxidation in coastal seawater. Frontiers in Microbiology, 5(MAY), https://doi.org/10.3389/fmicb.2014.00243

Acetone is an important oxygenated volatile organic compound (OVOC) in the troposphere where it influences the oxidizing capacity of the atmosphere. However, the air-sea flux is not well quantified, in part due to a lack of knowledge regarding which... Read More about Microbial acetone oxidation in coastal seawater.
