Diatoms survive in dark, anoxic sediment layers for months to decades. Our investigation reveals a correlation between the dark survival potential of marine diatoms and their ability to accumulate NO(3)(-) intracellularly. Axenic strains of benthic and pelagic diatoms that stored 11-274 mM NO(3)(-) in their cells survived for 6-28 wk. After sudden shifts to(More)
