Easton Library to Host Presentation on Mixotrophs by Horn Point Scientist

On Monday, July 16, at 6:30 p.m., in the Easton branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Horn Point Lab’s Dr. Diane K. Stoecker will give a PowerPoint presentation with dramatic photographs of “mixotrophs”—plankton that play both sides of the Animal-Plant divide, living off sunlight and using elaborate methods to hunt and subdue their prey.  Mixotrophs are a mixed blessing, improving the Bay’s productivity while also, occasionally, causing toxic blooms.
