Phytoplankton stoichiometry or nutrient content has been shown to vary in a number of dimensions (species, condition, time, space), but the heterogeneity within a species at a given time and location, and the underlying mechanisms and importance have not been explored. There are a number of mechanisms that can create intraspecific heterogeneity, and theory(More)
Phosphorus is required for numerous cellular compounds and as a result can serve as a useful proxy for total cell biomass in studies of cell elemental composition. Single-cell analysis by synchrotron X-ray fluorescence (SXRF) enables quantitative and qualitative analyses of cell elemental composition with high elemental sensitivity. Element standards are(More)
There can be significant intraspecific individual-level heterogeneity in the intracellular P of phytoplankton, which can affect the population-level growth rate. Several mechanisms can create this heterogeneity, including phenotypic variability in various physiological functions (e.g., nutrient uptake rate). Here, we use modeling to explore the contribution(More)
