The purpose of this field study was to determine the relationship between environmental conditions, particularly high nitrate (NO3−), low salinity events, and both nitrogen (N) storage (NO3−, ammonium [NH4+], free amino acids [FAA], protein, and total N) and nitrate reductase (NR) activity in the macroalgaeEnteromorpha lingulata andGelidium pusillum in the lower Mobile Bay estuary (Alabama, USA). The environmental conditions at the collection site varied over the growing season with the most… CONTINUE READING
