There is substantial interest in measuring C:P ratios in aquatic systems because these particulate ratios may influence food quality of phytoplankton to zooplankton grazers. In most analyses C is measured by dry combustion using a CN analyzer requiring that P be measured on a separate sample. We show for marine and freshwater phytoplankton cultures and naturally occurring seston that C can be measured by a variation of the same wet-persulfate digestion method frequently used for P analysis… CONTINUE READING
