Why are biotic iron pools uniform across high- and low-iron pelagic ecosystems?

Boyd, Philip W.; Strzepek, Robert; Ellwood, Michael; Hutchins, D.A.; Nodder, Scott D; Twining, B.S.; Wilhelm, S W


Dissolved iron supply is pivotal in setting global phytoplankton productivity and pelagic ecosystem structure. However, most studies of the role of iron have focussed on carbon biogeochemistry within pelagic ecosystems, with less effort to quantify the iron biogeochemical cycle. Here we compare mixed-layer biotic iron inventories from a low-iron (~0.06nmol L-1) subantarctic (FeCycle study) and a seasonally high-iron (~0.6nmol L-1) subtropical (FeCycle II study) site. Both studies were...[Show more]
