We are seeking cultures of Chironomus plumosus, or any true sediment-burrowing species of Chironomus, for a laboratory study on carbon and nitrogen cycling.
We can provide payment or co-authorship in exchange, depending on level of involvement in the research.

If you are able to help, please contact Andrew Mehring at
