Life in the “Plastisphere” - Microbial Communities on Plastic Marine Debris

Mon, 04/28/2014 - 4:07pm
Monday, April 28, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Dr. Erik Zettler
Professor, Oceanography/Associate Dean for Institutional Relations and Research

Plastic is now the most common form of marine debris and there is substantial public and scientific interest in this issue. The microbial community that develops on plastic marine debris has been particularly poorly studied, but could play a role in nutrient cycling, plastic degradation, and the spread of potentially harmful microbes.


SEA Semester students from colleges including OSU have played a major role in plastic marine debris research, collecting and analyzing the most extensive data set on plastic marine debris in the world, with over 10,000 individual net tows in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans since the 1980s. SEA’s extensive data set allows student scientists to objectively examine and characterize the distribution and quantity of plastic in different parts of the ocean including the so called “Pacific Garbage Patch”.

The program currently awards approximately 1,800 grants annually in all fields of study, and operates in more than 155 countries worldwide.


During their grants, Fulbright scholars will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
