Investigating the multiplicative effects of climate change on Southern Ocean phytoplankton

Andrew, Sarah


Southern Ocean phytoplankton have been shown to overcome the low light and low iron (Fe) environment through genomic and physiological adaptations. Together, these adaptations allow the efficient use of light and Fe to photosynthesise optimally in this cold polar region. Through biological and physical processes, the Southern Ocean (SO) accounts for approximately 40% of global carbon fixation. Model projections indicate that light, temperature, Fe and CO2 (thus pH) in the Southern Ocean are...[Show more]
