Intraspecific variability in Phaeocystis antarctica?s response to iron and light stress

Luxem, Katjia; Ellwood, Michael; Strzepek, Robert


Phaeocystis antarctica is an abundant phytoplankton species in the Southern Ocean, where growth is frequently limited by iron and light. Being able to grow under low iron conditions is essential to the species’ success, but there have been hints that this ability differs among clones. Here, we compare the growth, cell size and chlorophyll a concentrations of four P. antarctica clones cultured under different iron and light conditions. Iron was provided either as unchelated iron (Fe′) or bound...[Show more]
