Can algal photosynthetic inorganic carbon isotope fractionation be predicted in lakes using existing models?


Differential fractionation of inorganic carbon stable isotopes during photosynthesis is an important cause of variability in algal carbon isotope signatures. Several physiological models have been proposed to explain algal photosynthetic fractionation factors (εp). These models generally consider CO2 concentration, growth rate, or cell morphometry and have… (More)
