SRU researchers publish study in water science journal


Dec. 7, 2021

Researchers from Slippery Rock University recently coauthored a paper that was published in Water, a peer-reviewed, open access journal on water science and technology.

Chris Maltman, assistant professor of biology; Dean DeNicola, professor of biology; and Alexis Neff, a 2020 SRU graduate with a degree in biology, cowrote the paper, titled “Passive treatment for acid mine drainage partially restores microbial community structure in different stream habitats.” Their study investigated the effect of acid mine drainage treatment on restoring the natural microbial community structure.

Neff is currently graduate student at Grand Valley State University, studying biology and aquatic science.
