Cell size versus taxonomic composition as determinants of UV-sensitivity in natural phytoplankton communities

Abstract

Independent evidence from cultures, field studies, an: modeling suggests that cell size is a key factor determining the extent of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) damage of phytoplankton, with the greatest effects on small cells. We investigated this hypothesis in subarctic lake communities by measuring size-dependent photosynthesis under different UVR… (More)
