Zonations of photosynthesis and photopigments in artificial cyanobacterial mats were studied with (i) oxygen and pH microsensors, (ii) fiber-optic microprobes for field radiance, scalar irradiance, and PSII fluorescence, and (iii) a light microscope equipped with a spectrometer for spectral absorbance and fluorescence measurements. Our analysis revealed the presence of several distinct 1–2 mm thick cyanobacterial layers mixed with patches of anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria. Strong… CONTINUE READING
