CO2 concentrating mechanisms in algae: mechanisms, environmental modulation, and evolution.
The evolution of organisms capable of oxygenic photosynthesis paralleled a long-term reduction in atmospheric CO2 and the increase in O2. Consequently, the competition between O2 and CO2 for the… Expand
The Evolution of Modern Eukaryotic Phytoplankton
The community structure and ecological function of contemporary marine ecosystems are critically dependent on eukaryotic phytoplankton. Although numerically inferior to cyanobacteria, these organisms… Expand

Nitrogen (N) tends to limit plant productivity on young soils; phosphorus (P) becomes increasingly limiting in ancient soils because it gradually disappears through leaching and erosion. Plant traits… Expand
Phytoplankton in a changing world: cell size and elemental stoichiometry
Global increases in atmospheric CO2 and temperature are associated with changes in ocean chemistry and circulation, altering light and nutrient regimes. Resulting changes in phytoplankton community… Expand
Ocean acidification due to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide
The oceans cover over two-thirds of the Earth’s surface. They play a vital role in global biogeochemical cycles, contribute enormously to the planet’s biodiversity and provide a livelihood for… Expand
The 15N natural abundance (d15N) of ecosystem samples reflects measures of water availability
We assembled a globally-derived data set for site-averaged foliar delta(15)N, the delta(15)N of whole surface mineral soil and corresponding site factors (mean annual rainfall and temperature,… Expand
Temperature and algal growth
summary Genotypic variation in the temperature optimum for resource-saturated growth of microalgae has been used to provide envelopes of μm (maximum specific growth rate) as a function of… Expand
The use of natural abundance of nitrogen isotopes in plant physiology and ecology
Nitrogen stable isotope (^^N, ^*N) natural abundance has been much less used than carbon isotopes (^^C, ^^C) in plant physiology and ecology. Analytical problems, the lower fractional abundance of… Expand
Phosphorus limitation of nitrogen fixation by Trichodesmium in the central Atlantic Ocean
Marine fixation of atmospheric nitrogen is believed to be an important source of biologically useful nitrogen to ocean surface waters, stimulating productivity of phytoplankton and so influencing the… Expand
