Elemental quotas and physiology of a southwestern pacific ocean plankton community as a function of iron availability

Wilhelm, S W; King, A.L.; Twining, B.S.; LeCleir, Gary R.; DeBruyn, Jennifer M; Strzepek, Robert; Breene, C.; Pickmere, Stuart; Ellwood, Michael; Boyd, Philip W.; Hutchins, D.A.


The rate of carbon fixation by phytoplankton in marine surface waters is often tied to the supply of growth-limiting nutrients such as iron (Fe). While average cellular requirements and ratios for various elements are well known in the literature, especially through laboratory culture work, the plasticity of these relationships in natural plankton communities has been less explored. To gauge how changes in the biological availability of dissolved Fe might influence cellular nutrient ratios of...[Show more]
