Cylindrotheca closterium is a diatom commonly found in neritic waters of the Newport River estuary in North Carolina. This study measured diatom growth rates and motility. The results have implications for using diatoms in a variety of biotechnological and commercial applications that would require industrial-scale production including abalone culture.
The Diana fritillary (Speyeria diana) is a forest-dwelling butterfly of high conservation concern in North Carolina.
