Energy-dispersive X-ray microanalysis (10 kV microprobe) was carried out to determine the surface elemental composition of single cells of Microcystis aeruginosa within mixed phyto- plankton preparations, sampled at different depths (0-8 m) within a stratified eutrophic lake. Mean elemental concentrations (mmol kg-1 dry weight) throughout the sampled water column were: magnesium, 125; silicon (Si), 1864; phosphorus, 341; sulphur, 122; chlorine, 88; potassium, 282; calcium, 63. Although some… CONTINUE READING
