Since 2007, green tides have occurred along the coast of the Yellow Sea, China. The green tide extended to 50,000 km2 (floating area) within 2–3 months and the calculated covering area was about 400 km2 in 2010. These facts implied that the growth and reproduction of the dominant species Ulva prolifera were stimulated. We observed that 1 cm2 blades (single(More)
The hypothesis that nitrogen and phosphorus can have a positive effect on the bloom formation of Ulva prolifera along the southern coast of the Yellow Sea was examined. The nutrient enrichment on the growth and photosynthetic carbon assimilation of U. prolifera were investigated in laboratory. Four nitrogen and phosphorus treatments were established: high(More)
