CO2 concentrating mechanisms in algae: mechanisms, environmental modulation, and evolution.
TLDR
The diversity of CCMs, their evolutionary origins, and the role of the environment can exert regulatory effects on the expression of the CCM components are discussed. Expand
Phytoplankton in a changing world: cell size and elemental stoichiometry
TLDR
It is suggested that cell size and elemental stoichiometry are promising ecophysiological traits for modelling and tracking changes in phytoplankton community structure in response to climate change. Expand
ADAPTATION OF UNICELLULAR ALGAE TO IRRADIANCE: AN ANALYSIS OF STRATEGIES
TLDR
Comparison of the photon flux densities at which photoinhibition occurs in dinoflagellates and diatoms suggests that the former often experiencephotoinhibition at comparatively low irradiances, and this tolerance of a large absolute range of photon fluxdensities may, in part, explain why di atoms are often associated with spring blooms.

Mechanistic interpretation of carbon isotope discrimination by marine macroalgae and seagrasses.
TLDR
The literature, and previously unpublished data from the authors' laboratories, shows that the δ13C of organic matter in marine macroalgae and seagrasses collected from the natural environment ranges from -3 to -35‰, which correlates primarily with taxonomy and secondarily with ecology. Expand
Approaches for determining phytoplankton nutrient limitation
TLDR
The use of transient changes in chlorophyll a fluorescence as a potential tool for rapid assessment of algal nutrient status and the development of molecular probes specific to nutrient limited cells, such as flavodoxin as a diagnostic tool for Fe-limitation are described. Expand
What is conservation physiology? Perspectives on an increasingly integrated and essential science†
The definition of ‘conservation physiology’ is refined to be more inclusive, with an emphasis on characterizing diversity, understanding and predicting responses to environmental change andExpand
FOURIER TRANSFORM INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY AS A NOVEL TOOL TO INVESTIGATE CHANGES IN INTRACELLULAR MACROMOLECULAR POOLS IN THE MARINE MICROALGA CHAETOCEROS MUELLERII (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE)
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the relative proportions of the major macromolecules contained in microalgal cells and their changes in response to external stimuli can be determined rapidly, simultaneously, and inexpensively using FT‐IR. Expand
Algal evolution in relation to atmospheric CO2: carboxylases, carbon-concentrating mechanisms and carbon oxidation cycles
Oxygenic photosynthesis evolved at least 2.4 Ga; all oxygenic organisms use the ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase (Rubisco)–photosynthetic carbon reduction cycle (PCRC) rather than one ofExpand
Algal and aquatic plant carbon concentrating mechanisms in relation to environmental change
TLDR
CCMs are currently not part of models as to how global environmental change has altered, and is likely to further alter, algal and aquatic plant primary productivity. Expand
Diversity of carbon use strategies in a kelp forest community: implications for a high CO2 ocean
TLDR
Increased growth and competitive ability of noncalcareous macroalgae alongside negative impacts of acidification on calcifying species could have major implications for the functioning of coastal reef systems at elevated CO2 concentrations. Expand
