Emily's work on the bacterial community of LMA sponges is published

This paper shows that although LMA sponges are often dominated by Cyanobacteria and Proteobacteria, no biogeographical nor host-dependent distribution pattern is seen.  It is found, though, that LMA sponges are clearly different from HMA sponges in terms of diversity and abundance of bacteria phyla.
