Marine Mosaics: Emerging Patterns of

Nitrogen Fixation in the Oceans


Douglas Capone is world renown for his work on nitrogen cycling in the marine environment. Dr. Capone holds the Wrigley Chair of Environmental Biology and is departmental chair of Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California. His work has revealed how nitrogen fixation may be a major determinant of the capacity of the oligotrophic tropical oceans to take up atmospheric carbon dioxide. Professor Capone has also taken a leadership role in national environmental research programs and has made a major

contribution to the development of human resources in oceanography and environmental science. He is the author of more than 100 articles in scientific journals, including

Science and Nature, some of his awards include: Fellow, American Academy of Microbiology;

Fellow, American Association for the Advancement of Science; Fellow, American Geophysical Union; Fellow of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, and the Antarctic Service medal.
